Vancouver is tops once again with the subscribers of a trendy U.S. travel magazine.
Readers of Conde Nast Traveler have voted Vancouver the top city in the Americas, outside the U.S., for the fifth time since 2004.
The poll asked readers to rate cities in Canada and Central and South America on criteria ranging from hotels and restaurants to shopping and friendliness.
The award is a tribute to the people who work on the front lines of the city's tourism and hospitality sector, said James Terry of Tourism Vancouver.
The Readers' Choice Awards will appear in the November 2010 issue of Conde Nast Traveler and detail the top cities, islands, hotels, resorts, airlines, car rental agencies and cruise lines around the world.
Last year, Vancouver was named the world's most livable city by a business research division of The Economist magazine.
