World 10 Best Cities in The World 2022 Revealed
Particularly when it comes to the winners of the World's Best Awards, it tends to cause a rippling effect when Travel + Leisure readers provide their collective support to an idea. They take into account hotels, Michelin-starred restaurants, rich cultural history, prominent attractions, and, more recently, COVID-19 procedures when naming the world's best cities.
After tallying the votes and crunching the figures, we determine a score for each city and, eventually, the ranking of the top 25 cities worldwide.
After the WBA lists are made public, tens of thousands of individuals examine the results. These locations become the basis for travel plans, interest in the lesser-known winners rises, and towns all across the world experience the effects.
T+L asks readers to weigh in on travel experiences across the world every year for our World's Best Awards poll. Readers are asked to express their ideas on the best cities, islands, cruise ships, spas, airlines, and more. Cities were assessed by readers based on their tourist attractions, culture, food, friendliness, shopping, and overall value.
There are some interesting findings when comparing the top cities of 2022 to the rankings from the previous year. This year, Florence climbed back into the top five cities, moving up from sixth to fourth place, while Udaipur, India fell to tenth place from second place.
San Miguel de Allende, which won last year, came in at No. 2 and received numerous accolades. One respondent remarked, "The weather is wonderful, the music scene is excellent, and the food is outstanding." In contrast to Kyoto, Japan, which dropped from No. 5 to No. 14, Istanbul, Turkey, at No. 5, and Ubud, Indonesia, at No. 3, remained in the top five.
Travelers who visit Ubud frequently seek out seclusion while also engaging in outdoor activities like whitewater rafting, hiking, mountain biking, or simply taking leisurely strolls through rice fields or farms. The Ubud Writers & Readers Festival, the largest annual literary and artistic festival in Southeast Asia, is held there as well.
No wonder if Ubud still crowning as a center of culture, art, and the natural beauty.
T+L readers also expressed fresh admiration for other 2020 winners who had been absent the previous year, such as Mérida, Mexico (tied for No. 12), a center in the Yucatán that was commended as "one of the best towns to visit for music, dance, and gastronomy." Seville is one of the Spanish cities that is making a comeback this year (No. 11). The Andalusian capital was dubbed "a beautiful place to get lost in" by one WBA voter and "enchanting" by another.
