Phuket scoops 2 Condé Nast Traveler’s Readers’ Choice Awards

Phuket scoops 2 Condé Nast Traveler’s Readers’ Choice AwardsConde Nast Traveler recently announced the results of its 26th annual Readers’ Choice Awards, ranking the best cities, islands, cruise lines, airlines, hotels, and resorts  in the world. This year, a record-breaking 79,268 readers participated in the survey, almost double the number of survey takers in 2012.

Phuket featured twice in the awards, in the Top 20 Resorts in Asia category and also in the Top 5 Islands of Asia category.

It was the JW Marriott Phuket Resort & Spa which featured in the Top 20 Resorts in Asia category coming in at 17th position, whilst Phuket Island took 4th place in the Top 5 Islands of Asia category, a drop from 2nd last year, with some readers calling it too “chaotic” and filled with “too many tourists.” But many more still love it, saying it’s “still a very warm and lovely place to vacation,” “good for families,” a “great mix of traditional life and modern amenities” and has “the best beaches in Asia.”
