Peru Awarded Multiple Times During World Travel Awards
Peru has been awarded as the ‘Best Culinary Destination’ in the world for the sixth consecutive year! The archaeological complex Machu Picchu was named “Best Tourist Attraction” during the prestigious World Travel Awards (WTA), held in Phu Quoc, Vietnam. Next, to that, Peru also won awards for South America’s Leading Green Destination and South America’s Leading Tourist Board.
The prizes are awarded thanks to votes on the online platform of the organization, in which professionals in tourism, entrepreneurs, and travelers from all over the world participated.
“These awards are a recognition of the hard work we have delivered to promote travel to and gastronomy in Peru. We continue to work hard to maintain first place and to contribute to the quality of life for all Peruvians, who benefit from the growth of international tourism, “said Isabella Falco, director at PROMPERÚ.
Since 1993, the World Travel Awards have been “the barometer” for performance in the tourism industry worldwide. The winners are chosen through public votes via the internet and expert votes from the sector worldwide. According to the American newspaper The Wall Street Journal, these are considered the ‘Oscars’ for professionals in tourism.
