TAT proudly announced that Bangkok was recently named as one of the top ten cities in the world for visitors by influential travel publication Travel + Leisure. Bangkok took the sixth spot overall and third in Asia in a list that included some of the world’s most culturally rich destinations chosen by readers of the magazine. Bangkok was popular with readers for its bustle, street food and blend of ancient culture and modern luxury. Visits to serene temples and river tours were seen as must-do experiences.
The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) has long promoted Bangkok as a destination in its own right for long-haul and regional travellers seeking cultural experiences, world-class dining and shopping. This is not the first time Bangkok has been listed in the top ten cities having held the number one spot from 2010 to 2013. Its reappearance in the list shows the renewed confidence in Bangkok as a quality destination with a myriad of activities to enjoy.
