CN Traveller Readers’ Choice Awards 2021 are extremely prestigious lists published every year. The magazine teamed up with its sister title in the USA to ask readers to nominate the best of the best in the travel world.
From destinations to hotels, trains and airlines to spas, hundreds of thousands of readers voted for their top travel tips.
Divia Thani, Global Editorial Director of Condé Nast Traveller, said: “The diversity and vibrancy of our Readers’ Choice Award winners represent a desire to get back out into the world and experience the best of what the travel industry has to offer.”

For Britons who may think this is not high enough in the list, it’s worth remembering the competition was extremely stiff.
Top was Hvar in Croatia, followed by two Greek islands, Mykonos and Zakynthos.
Madeira came fourth and Ischia in Italy fifth.
Greece and Spain made up most of the list with Italy, Portugal and France also being listed.
Malta was 19th, and Jersey 20th.
While Jersey is not technically part of the UK, it is represented by the UK on the international stage.
The British Crown Dependency is part of the Channel Islands and is in fact closer to France than it is to the UK.
On the international lists, however, Jersey was classified as part of the UK.
The island offers long stretches of sandy beaches and many historic attractions.
On Tripadvisor, Catbasket said: “The coastal paths are spectacular and the green lanes quiet and rural.”
User Jehinch said: “A little gem of an island.
“Returned to visit Jersey after 40 years, only wished I had returned sooner.
“Jersey may be small but the island is beautiful. There is something for everyone, young or old including the historical sights and the lovely sandy beaches and bays.”
A holiday in Jersey doesn’t need to be long, as the island is only nine miles by five and can be visited for a weekend.
Britons who wish to visit Jersey can do so without isolation and no test on their return to the UK.
Unvaccinated Britons also have a hassle-free path to the island, with a free PCR test on arrival.
