Fly to Thailand to visit Asia’s top destination

Thailand has been awarded the title of the number one holiday destination in south-east Asia.

The diverse country has been named the top destination for international tourists according to a recent poll. Researchers at Bangkok University asked international travellers what their top destination in the whole of south-east Asia was, and out of those polled, 58 per cent named Thailand holidays their top choice. Thailand beat Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos to the top spot, with 85 per cent of the 686 interviewed saying they would return to the country again. When asked what drew them to Thailand, respondents said that ancient objects, culture, tradition, folk art, beaches, Thai food and shopping centres were the top attractions that brought them to the country. Furthermore, 97.6 per cent said they had much confidence in the safety of tourists in Thailand. This is not the first title Thailand has been awarded with - the country has been ranked the fourth best world destination by renowned travel magazine, Conde Nast Traveller, and was named the ‘Most Popular Destination’ by Go Asia at the International Tourism Exchange Berlin 2012. Thailand saw a record 21 million visitors in 2012, 15 per cent more than 2011, and the country is hoping that even more people will chose Thailand as their holiday destination for 2013. The Tourism Authority of Thailand has actively promoted Thailand in recent years as a high-quality destination offering unique products and experiences such as, health and medical tourism, Thai cookery courses and international conventions and exhibitions. Just missing out on the top spot of the poll taken by Bangkok University was Vietnam, with 34.1 per cent and Cambodia, with 30.6 percent. Image Sources: 1 2 3
