Bangkok tops Agoda’s 2018 list of Asian destinations

Online travel agent Agoda has found Bangkok to be the most popular Asian destination of 2018, “not only a convenient transit point to explore the rest of Thailand, but also teeming with energy, quirks and fascinating culture”.

 

 According to the year’s booking data from Agoda, beachside city Pattaya has been the 10th most popular Asian destination.

 

Tokyo is No 2, followed in descending order by Hong Kong, Osaka, Taipei, Seoul, Singapore and Bali, and then Pattaya.

 

 Thailand ranked second-most-booked Asian country this year. “From historic temples and sparkling white sandy beaches to rich culture and world-famous cuisine, it’s no wonder why Thailand continues to draw in travellers from around the world,” Agoda says.

 

 Japan has claimed the crown for top Asian country overall, the credit going to “ephemeral sights like cherry blossoms to the endless quirky, wonderful experiences such as robot cafes”. Malaysia ranks third.

 

Thai travellers have mainly enjoyed domestic trips in 2018, with Japan and Singapore the most popular countries further afield. 

 

Agoda says Bangkok, Pattaya, Chiang Mai, Hua Hin and Phuket have been the top five destinations in Thailand for Thais, followed by “laid-back destinations” Khao Yai, Chonburi, Krabi and Chiang Rai.

 

Tokyo appeals to Thais because it has no visa requirements, additional flight routes and diverse cultural highlights.

I'm waiting for the first "I wonder how much TAT paid for that" comment.  Or something about brown envelopes.  Or someone to call it a third world country.
