T+L readers select their favorite cities in the world in our annual “World’s Best Awards” survey for 2023.
For the second year in a row, Oaxaca took the No. 1 spot on our best cities around the world list.
The mole and mezcal capital has long been a favorite among T+L readers, but must-visit restaurants and cocktail bars (Selva, Sabina Sabe, to name a few), plus new-and-improved hotel talent, like the stunning, six-room Casa Silencio, really gave the city the edge it needed to return to the top of the podium.
As one reader said, Oaxaca is “hands down one of the coolest cities in the whole world.” The coolest, you might say.
Five of seven continents are represented on this year’s list of best cities in the world, according to T+L readers.
