悉尼再度荣获“世界最佳城市”称号

Sydney Opera House

Australia's biggest city, Sydney, has again been named the world's best city by readers of the U.S. magazine Travel and Leisure.

It is the eighth time in 10 years that Sydney, known for its iconic opera house, harbor bridge and stunning beaches, has topped the list.

It was followed by the Thai capital Bangkok in second place, with Italy's Rome and Florence in third and fourth places respectively. The northern Thai city of Chiang Mai made its first appearance in the top 10, placing fifth.

New York ranked sixth, followed by Istanbul in Turkey, Cape Town in South Africa, Oaxaca in Mexico and San Francisco.

Travel and Leisure magazine announced the 2005 results in a variety of categories in New York on Monday. The scores are indexed averages of responses by readers to a questionnaire that asks them to rate destinations, properties and companies relevant to their recent travel.

Bali again won the award for the world's best island, with the Four Seasons Resort Bali at Sayan being voted by readers as the world's best hotel.

The magazine's editor-in-chief, Nancy Novogrod, said there had been significant changes in readers' taste since the survey was launched 10 years ago.

She said smaller, independent hotels now held more appeal than larger ones, and interest in off-the-beaten-track locations continued to grow.

Crystal Cruises was named world's best large-ship cruise line and Singapore Airlines took the title of world's best international airline.

Novogrod said low-cost and regional airlines had become favorites among U.S. domestic airlines, with Midwest Airlines ranking No. 1.

澳大利亚最大的城市悉尼,再次被美国《旅游与休闲》杂志的读者们评为世界最佳城市。

这是悉尼十年内第八次获此殊荣,其地标性建筑悉尼歌剧院、海港大桥以及美得让人吃惊的海滩闻名遐迩。

紧随其后的是泰国首都曼谷,意大利首都罗马和佛罗伦萨分列三、四位。第五名是泰国北部城市清迈,这也是该城市首次跻身前10位。

纽约排名第六,随后分别是土耳其的伊斯坦布尔、南非的开普敦、墨西哥的瓦哈卡及美国的旧金山。

周一,《旅游与休闲》杂志在纽约公布了2005年不同项目的评选结果。通过问卷调查的形式,读者对他们最近出行的目的地、景点特色及旅行公司进行评级,将结果平均后得出最终得分。

巴厘岛再次获得世界最佳岛屿的称号,位于山妍的四季度假酒店则被读者评为世界最佳酒店。

该杂志总编南希·诺沃格洛德称,自10年前发起这项调查以来,读者的品位发生了很大的变化。

她表示,目前独立的小型酒店要比大型酒店更有吸引力,人们对非主流旅游区的兴趣继续呈增长势头。

“水晶邮轮”被评为世界最佳大型邮轮,而新加坡航空公司则被评为世界最佳航空公司。

诺沃格德指出,那些低价位,区域性的航空公司在美国国内航空公司中脱颖而出,其中中西航空公司排名第一。
