Bangkok is the top city destination in Asia Pacific


Elephant Polo Tournament in Bangkok

Bangkok remains the Asia-Pacific’s top destination city for air travel, and is the world’s second top destination city according to the newly released 2014 MasterCard Global Destination Cities Index. First in the world is London,

According to Dr. Yuwa Hedrick-Wong, Global Economic Advisor, MasterCard, Bangkok and London have vied in recent years for top ranking in the Global Destination Cities Index, which measures international visitor arrivals with at least one overnight stay in that particular city.

Bangkok did beat London for the top ranking in the 2013 Index, becoming the first Asian city to top the list.

Dr. Hedrick-Wong said, “Bangkok remains a leading global destination city in 2014 despite a drop in air travel that is likely attributable to the recent political turmoil in the Thai capital.”

This political unrest in Thailand since November last year might have had an impact on visitor numbers but confirms that with so many family and business friendly destinations across the country it is still a popular and safe destination.

He added, “Bangkok’s resilience as a global destination city is one of the big takeaways from the Global Destination Cities Index for 2014. So, maybe we just might see it back on top next year.”

According to the study, London is projected to receive 18.7 million international visitors in 2014. Forecasted visitors to the rest of the top five cities include:

Bangkok – 16.42 million
Paris – 15.57 million visitors
SINGAPORE – 12.47 million visitors
Dubai – 11.95 million visitors

In previous years, Bangkok has shown among the world’s biggest gains in international air travel, with double digit percentage increases in 2011 and 2012. In 2013, the city saw a 16.7% increase in international overnight visitors.

For the top five destination cities in the Asia-Pacific, Bangkok is in the top rank. It is followed by Singapore, KUALA LUMPUR, Hong Kong, and Seoul, remaining unchanged from 2013.

In terms of cross-border spending, Bangkok is ranked fifth in the world and second in the Asia-Pacific, with US$13 billion projected in international visitor expenditure for 2014.

Commenting on the Index, Tourism Authority of Thailand Governor Thawatchai Arunyik said, “It is rather unfortunate that our internal issues led to this drop in Bangkok’s rankings. However, it only motivates us to make an extra effort to bring the visitors back, as we will be doing with our “Thailand Happiness” grand comeback party in Bangkok between 25-26 July.”

Dr. Hedrick-Wong said, “All these cities are benefiting from a surge in international travel fuelled by an expanding middle class, innovations in luxury travel and rising need for business travel. The Index also indicates this surge will continue, even with more technology and collaboration tools available to businesses.”

Ann Cairns, President of International Markets, MasterCard, said, “The Index points to a continued strong demand and interest in air travel, both for business and personal travel. The recognition of this year’s top international destinations reinforces the continued importance of cities as business, cultural and economic hubs.”

Thai Airways continues to upgrade its fleet of aircraft, recently adding the 787 to serve alongside the A380 aircraft. These new airliners will certainly increase interest in air travel via Thailand along with the airlines high level of service.

Only minor changes in the top 10
by arrivals and receipts
Only two changes took place in the top 10 rankings by
international tourist arrivals and tourism receipts in 2013. In the
ranking by arrivals, Spain (with 61 million arrivals) regained the
third position it had lost in 2010 to China (56 million). Thailand

entered the top 10 arrivals ranking at number 10, climbing an
amazing five positions, while it moved up two places to 7th in the
ranking by tourism receipts.
When ranking the world’s top international tourism destinations,
it is preferable to take more than a single indicator into account.
Ranked according to the two key tourism indicators
– international tourist arrivals and international tourism receipts –
it is interesting to note that eight of the top ten destinations
appear on both lists, despite showing marked differences in
terms of the type of tourists they attract, as well as in average
length of stay and spending per trip and per night. In the case of
international tourism receipts, changes not only reflect relative
performance, but also (to a considerable extent) exchange rate
fluctuations between national currencies and the US dollar.
France continues to top the ranking of international tourist arrivals
with 83 million visitors in 2012 (2013 still to be reported), and is 3rd
in international tourism receipts (US$ 56 billion in 2013). The United
States ranks 1st in receipts with US$ 140 billion and 2nd in arrivals
with 70 million. Spain is still the second largest earner worldwide
and the first in Europe (US$ 60 billion), and recovered its 3rd place
in arrivals with 61 million visitors. China moved to 4th in arrivals
(56 million) and remains 4th in receipts (US$ 52 billion). Italy has
consolidated its 5th place in arrivals (48 million) and 6th in receipts
(US$ 44 billion). Turkey remains 6th in arrivals and 12th in receipts.
Thailand moved up two positions in the ranking by international
receipts to 7th
, while it entered the top 10 by arrivals in 10th
position, in a bumper 2013 when international arrivals were up
by 19% to 27 million and receipts by 23% to US$ 42 billion.
Germany and the United Kingdom remain respectively 7th and 8th
in arrivals, but moved down one place each in terms of earnings
to 8th and 9th places respectively. The Russian Federation
completes the top ten ranking by arrivals in 9th place, while the
two Chinese Special Administrative Regions Macao and Hong
Kong rank respectively 5th and 10th in receipts.

Most-visited countries by international tourist arrivals in 2013
1. Franc Europe 83.0 million (2012)
2.United States North America 69.8 million
3. Spain Europe 60.7 million
4. China Asia 55.7 million
5. Italy Europe 47.7 million
6. Turkey Europe 37.8 million
7. Germany Europe 31.5 million
8. United Kingdom Europe 31.2 million
9. Russia Europe 28.4 million
10. Thailand Asia 26.5 million
