The award comes via the Travellers’ Choice Attractions section, created by the travel webpage TripAdvisor, and based on the opinions and recommendations of holiday makers and users.
At the ceremony to present the award were Adeje’s mayor, José Miguel Rodríguez Fraga, the president of Loro Parque Wolfgang Kiessling, the vice-president and director of Siam Park, Christoph Kiessling, Blanca Zayas from TripAdvisor as well as other tourism representatives.
The prizes and awards are given as a result of remarks and opinions posted by millions of holidaymakers world wide, and Siam Park has quickly risen in the ranks of the world’s top aquatic parks, now firmly in top spot.
The Adeje mayor congratulated Siam Park on “this prestigious prize given by the park’s users”. He added that “Adeje is now on the global map with the best most important park in the world, something that makes us very proud and is an incentive to continue to work to improve this first class destination”.
This award is just one of four important titles the park as earned this summer, alongside Biosphere Park, due to its environmental standing, granted by the Institute of Responsible Tourism, UNESCO, which gives the title to attractions that place high emphasis on sustainable development and tourism and respect for its surroundings. Other awards this summer were the ISO 9000, ISO 14000 and EMAS, marks of distinction and quality in the sector.
Siam Park was opened in 2008 by Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn, of Thailand, and is part of the Loro Parque company.
