Bangkok is now the number one tourist destination in the world, beating out Tokyo, Hong Kong, London, Paris and Singapore. This is according to the recent survey done by the MasterCard Global Destination Cities Index. There is an estimated 15.98 million people who visited the city, a very little difference from the 15.96 million tourists that came to London. London was the top city last year.
The reason why Bangkok is getting more and more attention each year is because the tourism in Thailand is very impressive. There are so many things to do in Bangkok. The shopping is cheap, the food is amazing, there are beautiful temples, colorful nightlife and cheap accommodations. These are all of the things a person is looking for when they want to visit a foreign city.
Bangkok is also a travel hub. The Suvarnabhumi Airport is one of the biggest travel hubs in Asia. A lot of airlines from different parts of the world use this.
