01. Oaxaca

After losing the top spot to San Miguel de Allende last year, this southwestern Mexican city has once again landed at the top of readers' list of favorite cities around the world. It's a dream gastronomic destination, especially for mole and mezcal enthusiasts. The dominant Indigenous Zapotec culture influences the local cuisine, which is on full display in Oaxaca City. (In fact, one survey respondent specifically touted the "amazing local Indigenous food.") Numerous readers also raved about Oaxaca's 17th-century architecture, enticing cocktail scene, and lively craft markets, along with the kindness of its residents. "People go out of their way to make you feel special," one voter gushed. The city's "beautiful museums, streets, cafés, and restaurants," according to another respondent, were also factors in the win.

The time it takes to paint, depends on the size of each piece, from 2 months to 4 months depending on the size and type of painting, they use colorful decoration as a symbol of life and joy, each piece is unique.

Behind the manufacture of these crafts, there is a cultural richness that is connected with the ancient pre-Hispanic people such as the Zapotec.
