As Vancouverites we all know what a wonderful city we live in and although we don’t need validation, it’s always nice to get the recognition from others. For the 8th year in a row Vancouver was voted the best travel destination in Canada.
Not too shabby and as the city grows and continues to expand culturally, it will only further solidify its place at number the number 1 spot.
At their annual Readers’ Choice Awards held in New York City this week, Travel Weekly awarded Vancouver the top spot in the “Best in Destination: Canada” category. Those who vote in the awards are accredited travel agents who cast their ballots through an open online process. The awards are widely recognized in the industry and are presented annually to travel suppliers who excelled in product and service during the past year. Vancouver has been named best destination in Canada each of the eight years that the awards have been held. Canadian
“It’s no surprise that Vancouver has been voted the best travel destination in Canada for the eighth year in a row,” said Vancouver Mayor Gregor Robertson. “Vancouver has made its mark on the world stage as a vibrant and multicultural city in a stunning setting. We have outstanding hospitality services including some of the best hotels, restaurants and tourist attractions in the country. Tourism has steadily grown in Vancouver because we are a great place to work, live and visit. We look forward to building upon our world-class reputation and welcoming even more visitors to our great city for years to come.”
