India figures among the top ten world travel destinations and is the fifth choicest place to visit.

According to the latest list of the Top Travel Destinations by iExplore, an online seller of adventure and experiential travel, India ranks amongst the fifth choicest place to visit in the world in 2004 and 2005.

Egypt, Peru, Galapagos and China are the first four top travel destinations.

Other destinations preferred after India are South Africa, France, Italy, New Zealand and Alaska.

Destinations that showed strong growth in 2005 included Morocco (12th), Argentina (14th) and Jordan (16th). Bumped from last year's top ten were Chile (20th) and Costa Rica (40th).

The list is compiled and determined on the basis of the vacation purchases of its adventure and experiential travellers.

"There was no material shift in our best selling destinations in 2005, with our top five destinations largely unchanged. That said, both South Africa and New Zealand saw strong growth to move into our annual top ten list for the first time ever," iExplore founder and CEO, George Deeb, said.
