What Is It?

Guess there are more beach lovers than mountains :P Bangkok has emerged as the most travelled holiday destination for this year beating London for 2nd place. Tourism has always been South East Asia’s top attraction, but Bangkok surely took the crown this year. It also bagged the title of ‘city of angels’ in a list which had 132 cities including other popular travel destinations like London, Dubai and Paris.

Why Bangkok? 

Every tourist destination has to have certain attractions to get travellers there. So what does Bangkok have? Despite being a economic option for low-income country travellers, it is equally luxurious for high-income countries. Basically, there’s something for everyone!


Bangkok received nearly 21 million visitors this year as opposed to 19 million visitors in London. Other than Bangkok, Osaka in Japan had a growth in International visitors this year owing to its infrastructure development along with neighboring Japanese and South Korean cities.
