The Wanderlust Travel Awards results are out and Canada seems to have made quite an impression on international travellers this year.
Wanderlust magazine was established in the UK in 1993 and, in 2005, the company launched the Wanderlust Travel Awards.
“The awards are completely free to enter and open globally to tourism boards, tour operators, guides and destinations, to travel personalities and influencers,” states the website.
Winners are decided by readers and an independent panel of expert judges. And here’s how Canadian destinations ranked in different categories.

Costa Rica might have taken the top spot but Canadians will be proud to know that their home is the second most desirable country to visit, according to travellers. Australia came in third, followed by New Zealand, the USA, and Japan.

With its southern cuisine and Mardi Gras, it’s not surprising that New Orleans was voted the most desirable city this year. Other top-ranked cities include Tokyo, Cartagena, Singapore, Quito, Melbourne, and Rio de Janerio. It seems tourists also have a soft spot for Montreal, as the city ranked the eighth most desirable city in the world.

BC was voted the top favourite in 2021 for the most desirable region for tourists; however, this year the coveted spot went to Florida. New South Wales, Australia, came second but BC isn’t far behind in third place.
