Accepting the award on behalf of Bali, was Jean-Charles Le Coz, chairman of Bali Hotels Association.

In accepting the award, Le Coz said: "BHA is honored to receive the award given by discerning travelers. It is evidence that travelers around the world appreciate the culture and genuineness of Balinese people. These appreciations motivates all of us to work even harder and cooperate even tighter to reach new heights in Bali's tourism."

According to the publisher, those participating in the survey took an average pf 13.56 air trip over the past 12 months and had an average household income of US$164,501.

The "Best in Travel" Poll is now in its sixth year with votes based on actual travel experience, word-of-mouth and perceptions drawn from public relations initiatives and advertising.
