Every year, in the World’s Best Awards survey, Travel + Leisure invites its readers to consider travel experiences around the world – to share their thoughts on luxury hotels, resorts, cities, islands, cruises, spas, airlines, and more. Nearly 165,000 T+L readers completed the 2023 survey, an increase of nearly 25 percent over pre-pandemic polls.
More than 685,000 votes were cast in more than 8,500 places (hotels, cities, cruises).
Cities were rated primarily on factors such as sights/locations, culture, food, friendliness, shopping, and value.
For each condition, respondents could select a rating of excellent, above average, average, below average, or below average. The final score is the average of these responses.
