India has been named as Asia’s leading destination in the World Travel Awards.

Travel agents from around the world have voted India as the leading destination in Asia at this year’s World Travel Awards.

Described as the “Oscars” of the travel industry by the Wall Street Journal, the prestigious awards allow the winners to market themselves as the “best of the best” in their respective regions.

Other winners in India include the Oberoi Wildflower Hall, which took the accolade of leading spa resort in the country, while the Orange County Kabini Resort was named as the leading wildlife destination, with the company also picking up Asia’s responsible tourism award.

People booking holidays to India may want to use the results to help them plan their trip and ensure they see the best the country has to offer.

Graham Cooke, president of the World Travel Awards, praised all the winners for their work during difficult times for the tourism industry.

He said: “Today’s winners have remained focused on their long-term objectives and continued to deliver above and beyond the call of duty, setting an industry example.”
