The Guardian is one of my favorite newspapers, and although I couldn’t take part in the survey (UK only!), I was curious to see what was on other readers hit-lists.
Here are some of the internationally interesting results:
Best Online Booking Service: www.i-escape.com
Best Long-Haul Airline: Singapore Airlines (expected – they are fantastic)
Best Short-Haul Airline: www.jet2.com
Best Business Airline: Emirates Airlines (expected — it’s a great airline but also there are over 100,000 British Expats living in Dubai)
Best Overseas City: Hong Kong (didn’t expect that!)
Best European City: Berlin (yeah…I understand this choice)
Best European Country: Switzerland (huh!?)
Best Long Haul Country: Cambodia (huh!?) — what does Long-Haul Country mean anyway?
I think such country based surveys say a lot about the general travel-mind of the country — and honestly some of the results surprised me.
