Favourite destinations: Barcelona and Berlin are the cities with the best entertainment, Italy is top for gastronomy and Orlando is the most popular destination for family trips.
With its “informal” atmosphere and Mediterranean charm, Barcelona ranks as the best destination for solo travellers. But surprisingly enough, the city of Berlin overtakes Las Vegas and Ibiza, ranking as the most popular nightlife destination.
Recognised for its delicious food and great wine, Florence (Italy) was selected as the top gastronomic destination, followed by Bordeaux (France), the European capital for wine tourism. Meanwhile Orlando (Florida, USA), home to countless amusement parks, continues to be the preferred destination for families travelling with young children. London (UK), with its free museums and parks, comes in second.
Airports: Dubai has the best shops, Bangkok is highly rated for the extra services on offer, and Seoul has the most impressive architecture.
While Dubai International Airport received the most votes for the airport with the best selection of shops, Opodo travellers agree that Bangkok International Airport provides the best extra services, such as spas and beauty centres. The fine architecture of Seoul’s airport, seen as a symbol of Korean culture, is thought to be the most impressive of all.
British Airways wins best airline campaign, and the Singapore Airline hostesses are the most elegant.
The advertisement campaign run by British Airways during the Olympic Games has stirred up a lot of emotions, turning it into the most popular airline campaign. Moreover, the uniform worn by Singapore Airlines hostesses, and designed by Balmain, is thought to be the most elegant cabin crew outfit of all.
