Bali crowned Asia’s best island

Bali has been crowned Asia’s best island by the readers of the prestigious travel magazine Conde Nast Traveler. Bali garnered the highest score in the magazine’s Readers’ Choice Awards and defeated other exotic islands in the continent, including Luzon, Koh Samui, Phuket, Langkawi and Hokkaido. Another Indonesian island that made into the top-10 was Lombok, which ranked ninth. The 10th position was occupied by Mindanao.

The island received high scores for its scenery, friendliness of its people and its top quality lodging facilities. The quality of the island’s hotels was clearly reflected by the fact that two of the island’s hotels, Ubud’s Amandari and Manggis’ Amankila, snatched the first and second positions in the list of top 20 hotels in Southeast Asia in the same survey.

However, the readers gave a low score for the island’s beaches, a clear sign that the local administration must act quickly to deal with the rampaging sea erosion that affects most of the island’s shoreline.

This year’s Readers’ Choice Awards received votes and input from more than 46,000 readers of the magazine.
