EDINBURGH has been named as one of the world’s top ten cities to visit in a poll of the readers of travel magazine Wanderlust.
Edinburgh is one of only three European destination to make the list of top cities from a total of over 700 nominations. The Scottish capital came in eighth in the rankings, with Bagan in Myanmar (Burma) coming top of the rankings.
Scotland itself was also a vote-winner, coming in at number nine in the Top Country rankings.
Wanderlust’s editor-in-chief Lyn Hughes said: “I’m not surprised to see Scotland make the Top 10 Country list. It shares many things with the winner, Namibia, such as superb landscapes, accessible wilderness, good infrastructure, wildlife, and a wide range of adventures.”
Around 3,000 people voted in the magazine’s annual awards.
