Bangkok ranks 3rd in global top 20 destination cities

Reflected through the growth rate in 2011 against 2010, the ranking is likely to slip soon. However, Bangkok, which ranked the fourth in terms of visitor spending, also showed a huge increase in visitor spending. It is ranked 10th in terms of visitor spending growth.

In the visitor arrivals category, European cities dominate with 10 out of the 20, and with London and Paris in first and second position, respectively, attracting 20.1 million and 18.1 million, respectively. Cities in Asia/Pacific come second, accounting for eight of the top 20. Bangkok occupies the third position with the number of 11.5 million visitors, testifying to its attraction as a popular tourist destination. Dubai, in the Middle East, is ranked ninth. Only one city in North America is in the top 20, New York, which is ranked twelfth.
