Among the most prestigious awards in the travel industry, the Readers’ Choice Awards celebrate the ultimate places, movers and fixers around the globe.

The Condé Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards survey was made available through a secure website. Winners are selected from hundreds of thousands of respondents who submit ratings during the sweepstakes period. The questionnaire contained lists of candidates in various categories, who must receive a required minimum number of responses and a minimum overall rating to be eligible for a Readers’ Choice Award. Candidates were judged on a set of criteria relevant to their category, based on a standard five-point scale converted to a percentage. The average of these ratings determines the final score based on four decimal points, with two decimal points being published.
