The inaugural Best Business Hotel in the World title was given to Shangri-La Hotel, Singapore. The hotel was also voted Best Business Hotel in Asia-Pacific and Best Business Hotel in Singapore. Island Shangri-La, Hong Kong; Makati Shangri-La, Manila; and Pudong Shangri-La, Shanghai each won the Best Business Hotel awards in their cities.
The poll was conducted among the magazine’s frequent traveller subscribers based mainly in the Asia-Pacific region. Results will be published in the October 2010 issue of Business Traveller Asia-Pacific.

We consider this award an affirmation of the strength of Shangri-La brand as there is no better recognition than by the readers of the magazine who are among the most knowledgeable, experienced and committed travellers in the region,” said Greg Dogan, president and chief executive officer.

More and more travellers think that researching and planning a European city break is half the fun and they're not interested in pre-arranged trips or escorted tours. Self-guided tours offer a lot of advantages but require some guidance and good resources.
With the recent wild fires, disrupting flights and increasing air pollution, environmental quality is a growing factor in attracting tourists.
