It beat out the likes of Tokyo, Melbourne and Dublin in the international vote.
Despite the lack of travel this year, it’s still comforting to know that Scotland still has its fair share of people still thinking about us during the lockdown.
And it looks like one city, in particular, has made a big impression after Glasgow was once again named the friendliest city in the world by public vote.
Scotland’s biggest city came out top in a new poll carried out by travel experts Rough Guides – after they asked fans on social media to vote for the city they think is the friendliest they’ve ever visited.
Taking the top spot, Glasgow beat out the likes of Vancouver, Tokyo, Melbourne and Dublin to sit highest in the 15 cities named in the poll.
It’s the second time that Rough Guides readers have given Glasgow the title, having already done so back in 2014.
The award comes during a good wee run for our beloved city, which saw Glasgow named among the world’s top cities in a list compiled by the website Best Cities back in November – ahead of the likes of Mexico City, Salt Lake City, Raleigh (North Carolina) and Krakow.
In naming Scotland’s biggest city in their exclusive ranking of the world’s top urban destinations, the website noted that “music and a pursuit of equality keep Glasgow real, even as its reputation soars”.
Meanwhile, just last month Buchanan Street joined the likes of Carnaby Street in London and Rue Mouffetard in Paris in being named among the world’s top pedestrian streets by leading travel media brand Afar.
