Winners in the Best in Travel awards are voted by the readers of SmartTravelAsia.com.

Smart Travel Asia is the region’s only dedicated online travel magazine with over one million readers worldwide.  These are frequent travellers in the know. We offer review-based editorial written by seasoned journalists to help people make intelligent choices.


The SmartTravelAsia.com 2011 BEST IN TRAVEL POLL – now in its seventh year – is a distillation of readers’ perceptions and favourite travel brands.  The vote is based on actual travel experience, word-of-mouth, as well as an idea of the brand drawn from ads and PR

Approximately 60 percent were based in Asia (largely Singapore, Australia, Hong Kong, India, China, Japan, Malaysia, Thailand, Philippines, and the Middle East), 20 percent in UK/Europe and 20 percent in USA and North America.  As many as 92.4 percent of the voters said they drew their primary image of brands from the Internet and 88.8 percent said they made travel decisions online. However, just 36% said they book online, many preferring to talk with a human being especially for high-end bookings.  Most readers said they went online primarily to seek independent "reviews and information" first and not just the "best price".

Here then, are the winners of the SmartTravelAsia.com 2011 BEST IN TRAVEL POLL. These lists of leading “aspirational” brands offer insight into business and leisure travel preferences at the mid to upper end of the market. There were no nominations or limits on which readers could vote for. Readers picked products from thousands of possible choices in Asia.
