The magazine asked its readers to vote in a range of categories, including the most favourite countries, the best cities, resorts and resort islands, to honour the top destinations in the world.

With white sand beaches and good foods, Phu Quoc is also famous as a cradle for the craft of making fish sauce and cultivating pepper, and home to natural coral reefs and thick tropical forests.

The island is now taken as a relaxation paradise for both domestic and foreign tourists. It boasts primeval forests and pristine beaches dotting its 150km coastline.

The Philippines’s Boracay island topped the ranking. Its Palawan island was also present in the list.

Thailand has the most favourite islands, including Koh Samui, Phuket and Phi Phi.

Among the most favourite countries 2022, Thailand came third and Japan second in Asia. Spain became the most popular in the list.
