Sydney the sixth most favorite city in world rankings

You are living in one of the best cities in the world as voted by the recent reader’s choice conducted by Conde Nast Traveler USA Reader’s Choice Awards announced in New York on October 17, 2012.

Sydney has again been voted one of the world’s best cities in the Condé Nast Traveler USA and has beaten strong competition to take out the top city in the Oceania region.

In world rankings, Sydney was rated sixth by the magazine’s readers, with Melbourne not making the top 100.

The prestigious Readers’ Choice Awards are voted on by travellers rather than by travel writers or travel agents and reflect the views of experienced visitors who travel the world.

It’s the fifth major international award for the Harbour City this year, including:

·                 World’s Favourite Overseas City, in the Conde Nast Traveller UK Reader’s Choice Awards

·                 World’s Best Festival and Major Events City, by the International Festival and Events Association

·                 Top 5 Best World Destinations, in the UK Cruise International Awards

·                 Number One City in Australia, in the Trip Advisor Travellers Choice Awards.

Condé Nast readers cast votes in the Awards, with travellers rating cities according to ambience, friendliness, lodging, restaurants, culture, sight-seeing and shopping.

The readers also ranked Australia’s hotels, giving the Langham Sydney the top spot and naming eight of the nation’s top ten hotels in Sydney, including the top five.

The majority of Condé Nast Traveler readers are based in North America.   As one of NSW’s largest international tourism markets, North America is worth more than $503 million to the NSW economy.
