Readers of the popular and highly regarded Condé Nast Traveller UK magazine have just voted Greece as the best country in the world to visit in the 2016 edition of the Readers’ Travel Awards.

The current refugee and economic crisis in Greece has not deterred jet setters from making their way to the Mediterranean- with tourists well aware of the fact that Greece is still at the top when it comes to guaranteed warm weather, pristine sea water,  breathtaking sunsets and delicious cuisine.

Greece’s tourism office is predicting a record year for 2016, with arrivals estimated to reach 25 million and 27.5 million including cruise ship passengers.

Coming in at second place is neighbouring country Italy and third place has been awarded to the United States.

  1. When God created the world he saved all the best bits and the best people and put them in Greece.
    Δόξα τω Θεώ για τους Έλληνες.

  2. Wow, I am so proud to be Greek! We just got back from Greece after a two month visit of Athens and four islands!!! No where in the world is as beautiful as Greece and I’ve been to quite a few places. I love Greece!!! Well deserved honor!

    Thank you for recognizing its beauty and diversity.

  3. I travelled the world for 2 decades bye Land Rover and motor trimaran and found my Eden in Greece, traveled first anywhere, lived some years in Halkidiki and since 3 years in Mykonos. The most beautiful nature, the weather, the relaxed atmosphere and the loveliest, most tolerant and warm hearted people make you think: you are in paradise! I’m artist(painter, writer, multi Instrumentalist), there is no better place in the world for inspiration…! 🙂

  4. Kos is the best Island I have ever experianed. The food is even better than mainland Greece and the people are the best
