Bangkok named ‘Best Leisure City in Asia-Pacific’ for fifth consecutive year
While all of us are stuck in our home country, Bangkok once again named as the “Best Leisure City in the Asia Pacfic” by readers of Business Traveller Asia Pacific. This means Bangkok retain its crown as the Best Leisure City in Asia Pacific for the fifth consecutive year.
This also marks a record 10th time Bangkok has won this award since 2008. Each year, Business Traveller Asia-Pacific confers the awards based on votes cast by its readers and subscribers.
Mr. Yuthasak Supasorn, Governor of the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT), said, “We are touched that even with the current travel restrictions, Bangkok remains top-of-mind with Business Traveller Asia-Pacific readers. We look forward to welcoming them back soon.”
Bangkok’s rich diversity remains a major draw, showcased via its unique blend of New World experiences and Old World charms. And it is not just about mouth-watering Thai street food, though that remains a key attraction. the city now boasts multiple Michelin starred restaurants served by a modern transportation infrastructure. This includes a new Blue Line underground train extension to historic Rattanakosin Island, where the grandeur of its amazing past remains on full display.
Between April and June 2020, Business Traveller Asia-Pacific sent out a voting poll to subscribers with the results independently compiled by market research company Business Intelligence.
Although there was not much travelling this year as in the past, readers still voted for their favourite airlines, hotels, and airports for 2020.
We considered ourselves lucky as we managed to visit Bangkok twice in 2020. Our last trip to Bangkok was in February before the COVID-19 pandemic.
Since then, we have been following news from our friends and family in Bangkok. We can’t wait to visit our friends and family in Bangkok and also exploring new places in the capital city of Thailand including the new Golden Buddha. For now, we can just read back the stories of Bangkok at https://www.placesandfoods.com/category/thailand/thailand-bangkok.
We are in close contact with Tourism Authority of Thailand Malaysia and if there is any good news, we will update on our Facebook and Blog. For now, please stay at home and be safe. There will be a time for us to visit Bangkok, be patient.
