Ever flown to the Thai islands and merely stopped over in Bangkok without visiting it? Shame on you! Or rather, your loss. The Thai capital has built up quite a reputation over the years – sufficient to become the most visited city in the world.
According to Mastercard’s Global Destination Cities Index, Bangkok had 21.5 million visitors who stayed at least one night during 2018. By comparison, London had 19.9 million overnight visitors last year, while Paris had 18 million. And with good reason. Bangkok has something to offer every calibre of traveller, and best of all, it’s much more affordable than its competitors. Whether it’s culture, shopping, partying, food or even relaxation you’re looking for, Bangkok has it all.
