Travel website Tripadvisor.com has announced the winners of its “2011 Traveler’s Choice Food and Wine Destinations” awards, with Thailand’s capital beating out Hong Kong to claim top prize in the Asia category.

But though Bangkok might be making great strides where wine appreciation is concerned, it’s definitely the food and not the drink that earned this street food mega-city the top spot on the list.

The current flooding is having some impact on tourism. Key tourist destinations and attractions across Thailand are not damaged by the floods and most are open.

Travel website Tripadvisor.com has announced the winners of its 2011 Travelers’ Choice Food and Wine Destinations awards, with New Orleans, Florence and Bangkok taking top honors in the United States, Europe and Asia, respectively.

The inaugural Travelers’ Choice Food and Wine Destinations award winners are based on traveler ratings and TripAdvisor reviews.

For many, Bangkok edging out Hong Kong to claim top prize in the Asia category comes as a surprise, given Thailand’s high taxation rate on imported wine, and all imported alcohol.
