Vietnam ranked 12th among the top 20 destinations travellers want to visit.
Wandering Chef Anthony Bourdain says going to Vietnam changed his life. “It just seemed like another planet; a delicious one that sort of sucked me in and never let go” he told CNT. We’d be happy just to sip Vietnamese coffee and eat pho all day, but the adventurous can descend into the world’s largest cave, Son Doong, in Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park.
Italy is the No. 1 destination on the list that travellers wish to visit once in their lifetime. According to the CNT readers, who’ve voted for Italy as the number one country to visit in the world for five years in a row, Italy is all about leisure – sip wine for hours in Venice’s Piazza San Marco, make friends whilst laying in hammocks on a villa in Tuscany, or sunbathe on the cliffs of Riomaggiore.
France, the country that gave us cabaret, champagne, and hundreds of cheese varietals is one of the most romantic places on earth. In the springtime – an excellent season for a trip to France – the editors of CNT praise Morzine for some of the most beautiful hiking you can imagine. Under two hours by car from Morzine, Lake Annecy is an enchanting detour.
Spain, the US and Greece ranked third, fourth and fifth respectively.
The awards are based on the ratings and feedback of more than 128,000 readers – the highest level of participation in the magazine’s history.
Other Readers’ Choice Awards include the world’s best cruise lines, hotels, spas and airlines, among others.
