As if us Vancouverites needed our collective egos stroked more, Condé Nast Traveler has done just that.
Our beautiful city slides into the sixth spot on a list of the best cities in the world by the magazine, as voted by their readers.
All of the cities are outside of the United States and were voted on by 100,000 people in the 2016 Reader’s Choice Survey.
Vancouver gained major points for our “creative arts scene,” “rugged natural beauty,” and “no shortage of things to do” (you know that last point to be true if you’re a regular Daily Hive reader).
Beyond that, our ethnic diversity means we have fabulous food.
And we’re in good company, too. Global cities such as Istanbul, Paris, Hong Kong, and Munich made the list of 40 cities.
For the record, Montreal came in 39th place, while Toronto came in at number 37.
