Portugal was the biggest winner at the latest World Travel Awards: the country was elected World’s Leading Destination. Lisbon got the award for the Best City Break Destination.
It’s the first time that an European country wins such award. Among the 17 destinations running for this recognition were countries like Brazil, Greece, USA or the Maldives. A couple of months ago Portugal had already won the award for Leading European Destination.
Portugal keeps attracting more and more tourists and foreign residents. This is another recognition adding to many accomplished during the last years. A couple of months ago, Lonely Planet placed Portugal among the top destinations for 2018.
Lisbon, once again
Lisbon, that has also been gathering multiple awards as destination for a while, was as well among the winners at the World Travel Awards Ceremony. This city was the top choice in the category for best city break destination.
