Online travel review site Tripadvisor announced on Tuesday that it has reached one billion user reviews, five years after the site topped 500 million reviews.

Tripadvisor, founded in 2000, allows users to post their reviews of hotels, resorts, bed and breakfasts, short-term vacation rentals and vacation destinations, as well as restaurants.

His longest English review ever was a 17,241-word review of the Playa Pesquero Resort in Cuba.

Tripadvisor said the most-reviewed accommodation in its history is the Luxor Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, with over 48,000 reviews to date. The most rated restaurant is Pasteis de Belem in Lisbon, Portugal, with nearly 53,000 reviews. The most reviewed attraction is the Sagrada Familia Basilica in Barcelona, ​​Spain, with over 164,000 reviews.

He also said that during the same period, more than 1.26 million new business listings appeared on Tripadvisor.
