Krakow 5th Favourite for Brits
This weekend, the Guardian newspaper once again announced their Guardian and Observer Travel Awards winners. Coming in at fifth place was Krakow, behind Tokyo, Berlin, Sydney (last year’s winner), and San Francisco. According to the newspaper, the Japanese city came out on top due to it being “home of all things hi-tech, modish and online”.
The awards are based on surveys of Guardian and Observer readers, which the newspaper calculated take a combined 20.8 million holidays per year, despite both financial hardships stemming from the recession, as well as the brief halt in air travel this spring as a result of the Icelandic ash cloud.
