Bangkok has officially overtaken London as the World’s Most Popular Destination! This according to Mastercard’s annual Global Destinations Cities Index.
The capital of Thailand is expected to welcome 21.47 million international visitors this year. This is nearly twice the local population of 10 million! It has been named the “Word’s Best City” by Travel + Leisure.
London falls in a close second with 19.88 million, and Paris in third with 18.03 million.
There’s just no beating a fascinating city like Bangkok, what with its colorful markets, accessible temples, affordable day trips, amazing food, friendly locals and budget shopping centers. In Thailand, you definitely get your bang for your buck.
Elsewhere in Asia, the cities of Osaka, Dubai, Singapore and Seoul are also growing steadily in terms of tourism. We look forward to seeing who’s on the top list next year.
