The Conde Nast Readers’ Choice Awards have recognized excellence in the travel industry for the past 32 years running. This year marks the 33rd Reader´s Choice Awards, which was the most unique year in the history of these awards, since they are based on the travel experiences of readers all over the world, and readers cast their votes at a time when most non-essential travel was banned globally.

Over 715,000 Conde Nast readers submitted their ratings and comments based on their recent travel experiences. Their responses help Conde Nast to select the world’s best resorts, spas, cities, countries, islands, airports, and airlines.
