Travel + Leisure recently put out their awards for the world’s top cities in their annual reader-chose World’s Best Awards. The list of top cities around the world probably won’t surprise many, but it is surprising that three Southern locations in America hit the top ten.

1. Charleston, South Carolina
2. Chiang Mai, Thailand
3. San Miguel de Allende, Mexico
4. Florence, Italy
5. Luang Prabang, Laos
6. Kyoto, Japan
7. New Orleans, Louisiana
8. Barcelona, Spain

The best European spots were Florence, Italy for the best city and and Ishcia, Italy for the best island. The Canadian top spots were Quebec City for the top city and Vancouver Island for the top island.
