It's a sad, wonderful fact of life that the planet offers more amazing travel experiences than one can hope to experience in a lifetime. With this knowledge, it can be hard to decided exactly where to go, what to see, or where to stay and eat. That's where Travel + Leisure's World’s Best Awards come in.

Every year for our World’s Best Awards survey, T+L asks readers to weigh in on travel experiences around the globe—to share their opinions on the top cities, islandscruise lines, spas, airlines, and more. All this data helps inform our travel decisions as well as inspires us to get out and go.
