Bangkok City No 2 in Annual MasterCard Destinations Index

By on Jun 16, 2015 in Hotel-Tourism, Property News

Bangkok industry should delight in the fact Bangkok city is second on the list of Asian cities in the MasterCard Global Destinations Cities Index and is catching up with London. Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Seoul and Hong Kong were all in the top 10.

Matthew Driver, President for Southeast Asia at MasterCard, said tourism was becoming an increasingly important source of income and employment for many Asian countries. This reflects the growing appeal of Asia as it continues to develop, led by the fast-emerging Asean economies, China and India.

Juthaporn Rerngronasa, acting governor of the Tourism Authority of Thailand, said the coming Asean Economic Community would provide a great opportunity for Thailand to build upon its strength in tourism. “As the MasterCard Global Destination Cities Index shows, we have retained our strength globally, and this is in part due to intra-Asean travel from cities like Singapore and Kuala Lumpur. This facilitates growth across the region as well as paving the way for Thailand to be the tourism hub of Southeast Asia. “We are proud of our nearly decade-long partnership with MasterCard and look forward to working together to continue to encourage Thai and international tourists to travel within and around Thailand.”
