Meredith Corporation’s  Travel + Leisure announces the results of the World’s Best Awards 2020 readers’ survey, revealing the top travel destinations and companies in the U.S. and around the globe. This year marks the 25th edition of this annual readers’ survey, in which Travel + Leisure readers rate their experiences in a variety of categories, from cities and hotels to cruise lines and airlines.* The complete results are now featured on www.TravelandLeisure.com/worlds-best and span more than 100 digital stories, including 91 lists.

Among the rankings are Top Cities Overall, with Oaxaca, Mexico; San Miguel de Allende, Mexico; and Hoi An, Vietnam, placing first through third; and regional lists, such as Top City Hotels in the Continental U.S., with The Mark in New York City, taking the No. 1 spot, followed by The Georges in Lexington, Virginia, and Santa Monica Proper Hotel in Santa Monica, California.

The Travel + Leisure World’s Best Awards is a leading barometer of the places and companies that satisfy some of the most passionate and discerning travelers. In the 25 years the World’s Best Awards readers’ survey has been published, Singapore Airlines is the only honoree to be named a No. 1 winner in its category – World’s Best International Airline — every year.

“I’m proud to celebrate all of the honorees recognized by our readers in this 25th edition of the Travel + Leisure World’s Best Awards. These remarkable brands and destinations inspire us all to get out there and explore by providing singular experiences—experiences that reinforce the idea that travel, at its core, has the ability to open hearts and shape minds.
