Best in Travel Readers' Choice: vote for your favourite city and country!

Two weeks ago we asked you to nominate the best city and country for travel in 2012. In other words, the places to see next year.

Picking just one destination is every traveller's nightmare - akin to choosing a single chocolate from a Belgian sampler - but you obliged, suggesting some brilliant places across the world from Cape Town to Oman.

We've rounded up the top 10 destinations nominated by readers for each category based on the most votes and the best rationales, and now we need your assistance to work out which city and country will be crowned number 1, and receive the coveted Best in Travel Readers' Choice Award for 2012.

Voting is now closed - check back soon for the results!

In case you're curious, the countries in the running are Colombia, Iceland, India, Italy, Mexico, Philippines, Slovenia, Turkey, UK and USA; cities are Bangkok, Barcelona, Berlin, Istanbul, Lisbon, London, New York, Puebla, Reykjavik and Rio de Janeiro.
