Our favorite India now becomes world’s favorite destination for traveling. ‘Incredible’ India has been voted as the favorite country to travel to by readers of Conde Nast Traveler, a major travel magazine, during its 10th annual awards that honor the most popular destinations at home and around the world.
The 2007 Condé Nast Traveler Readers’ Travel Awards honor the best in the world: hotels, airlines, islands, tour operators, spas, cruise lines, cities, countries. In the UK, London has been voted the best city for its restaurants, nightlife and entertainment.
India scored above 89 in all ten criteria, with its best features being culture (scoring 97.17 out of 100), value for money (94.78) and variety of attractions (96.30). The country’s popularity ensures a spot in The World’s Top 100 list too where it sits at number 4.
Said Sarah Miller, editor of Conde Nast Traveler: “I’m delighted that India scored so well in our Readers’ Travel Awards. To achieve the accolade of our discerning readers’ favorite country in the world is fantastic.
“As it celebrates 60 years of independence – a real achievement – it shows India’s moment has come. The world’s largest democracy is living up to the dreams of 1947.”
