Thais have been voted the best people in the world in an online survey by Conde Nast Traveller magazine, a leading US source of travel features.

 

Thailand won in the category of “Best Country for People” in the 2018 annual award.

 

The award honours “the best that the travel world has to offer”. Other categories include hotels, airlines, ski resorts, islands and architecture.

 

In addition, Thailand came third in the “Best Country” category after Italy and Greece .

 

Two hotels – the Mandarin Oriental in Bangkok and Six Senses on Kho Yao Noi – came fourth and fifth respectively in the category of “Best Hotel in Asia and the Indian Subcontinent”. 

 

Meanwhile Samui island was awarded the ninth spot in the “Best Islands in the World” category, falling after Greek islands, Maldives, Balearic islands, Hawaii, St Lucia, Bali, Sicily and Mauritius.

"Thais have been voted the best people in the world".

 

"Thailand won in the category of “Best Country for People”.

 

Those two statements are not one and the same...They are two different things?

Validity of the survey is questionable as Thailand ranks 5th in Best Ski Resort category.

 

Tourism Ministry also reports no prostitution or crime at Thai ski resorts.

In my book Thailand is a great country with friendly, most helpful people I have ever met, having travelled and worked in many countries.  Now if Thailand would make the same choice regarding UK expats pensions the same as Costa Rica and the Philippines, a lot of us expats would have a lot more pension money to spend here in Thailand than having it frozen by the UK government because we chose to retire here.

Conde Nest is an upscale travel magazine read by wealthy travellers. I can fully imagine that those who fly to Phuket and ensconce themselves in a 20,000 baht a night resort far from the madding crowd, and instead surrounded by fawning staff think Thailand is heaven on earth.

In all seriousness, Thailand is an amazing country full of some amazing people. But I don't think people would disagree that if you're here on a short trip with piles of cash, the more amazing people will seem.
