Udaipur is voted as world’s best city for travellers in 2009
 

Udaipur: Udaipur, the beautiful city of the state Rajasthan in India is voted as the world’s best city for travellers in 2009 in an online poll by Travel + Leisure magazine.

Udaipur, known as the ‘Venice of the East’ has beaten last year’s winner Bangkok. The island of Bali in Indonesia topped the Galapagos to be named best island in the annual poll, in which casual and laid-back destinations prevailed.

According to Nancy Novogrod, editor-in-chief of Travel + Leisure, this year’s poll reflected changing travel interests in a challenging economy, with Udaipur, famous for its canals and palaces, a current tourist favorite for well-heeled Westerners.

In a statement, Nancy said, “Value, intimacy, service, and discovery are top priorities. As for that so-last-August-sounding word, luxury, it's all about enclaves that shelter stealth wealth.”

Value ratings for a number of top-ranked cities are Udaipur, Cape Town, Bangkok, Buenos Aires, Chiang Mai, and Luang Prabang, which were sky-high while other far-flung cities also made a strong showing.

The results were declared from votes by magazine subscribers in an Internet poll which went live between January and March. Travel + Leisure will honour winners on July 21 in New York.
