According to Conde Nest editors, 2022 was the year we embraced travel again after two years of enforced abstinence. The travel magazine covers the world with its annual Readers’ Choice Awards identifying the top hotels, destinations, cities, friendliest countries and islands.
Under the islands category, readers voted the top destinations by region, and past favourites kept their top spots for Asia across the ranking. Southeast Asia’s islands dominated the list, with Thailand scoring three islands (Samui, Phi Phi and Phuket) and the Philippines two (Boracay and Palawan).
