New Zealand is again considered as Britain's top long-haul holiday spot.

Readers of the Guardian, the Observer and the Guardian website chose New Zealand as their favourite long-haul destination.

Peru was the next favourite destination.

Travel editor Andy Pietrasik says readers believe there is something romantic about the idea of travelling to the other end of the world and exploring unparalleled wild scenery.

New Zealand held the title in 2006. Cambodia, Vietnam and Japan were top in 2007.
