Bangkok was recently named as one of the top ten cities in the world for visitors by influential travel publication Travel + Leisure. Bangkok took the sixth spot overall and third in Asia in a list that included some of the world's most culturally rich destinations chosen by readers of the magazine.

Readers were asked to judge destinations on factors including culture, food, friendliness, shopping and city landmarks and rate them out of 100. Bangkok was popular with readers for its bustle, street food and blend of ancient culture and modern luxury. Visits to serene temples and river tours were seen as must-do experiences.

The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) has long promoted Bangkok as a destination in its own right for long-haul and regional travellers seeking cultural experiences, world-class dining and shopping.

Mrs. Juthaporn Rerngronasa, TAT Acting Governor and Deputy Governor for International Marketing (Europe, Africa, Middle East and Americas) said, "Because Bangkok keeps winning such accolades year after year and is rated so highly by tourists is testament to the excitement, warm hospitality and unique Thai experiences the city can offer. There is so much to do here, in terms of shopping, food and entertainment, not to mention some of the world's best hotels. Bangkok is a great destination for travellers of all ages."

This is not the first time Bangkok has been listed in the top ten cities having held the number one spot from 2010 to 2013. Its reappearance in the list shows the renewed confidence in Bangkok as a quality destination with a myriad of activities to enjoy.

This year, first place in the list went to the Japanese city of Kyoto, which was praised for its shrines and historic quarter. South Carolina's Charleston took the second spot and Cambodia's Siem Reap came third. Florence and Rome also scored highly with Krakow, Barcelona, Cape Town and Jerusalem also proving popular.

Travel + Leisure is one of the world's most widely-read travel publications and has a circulation of around seven million readers. The full list of winners will be published in the magazine's August issue.
