Over 300,000 travellers took part in the survey, submitting ratings and over 75,000 comments to create a list of favourite destinations.
“They chose tiny private islands in the tropics, small culture rich cities in Europe, and Intimate River cruises,” according to Conde Nast. “Most notably, they declared a passion for the authentic, the personalized, the unexpected—finding all three in both newcomers and stalwarts around the world.”
