The Business Traveller Awards 2017 named Bangkok the ‘Best Leisure Destination in the Asia Pacific‘ for the second straight year, marking a record sixth time Thailand’s capital city has received this prestigious international accolade.

Ms. Sarima Chindamat, Director of the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) Hong Kong Office, was on hand to receive the award from the magazine’s representative, Mr. Willian Tang Tat Chi, a Hong Kong-born veteran fashion designer, at a ceremonial luncheon that took place on 8 September in Hong Kong.

Other awards for Thailand included The St Regis Bangkok that won the Best Business Hotel in Bangkok honour.

According to Ms. Sarima, the Best Leisure Destination in the Asia Pacific and the Best Business Hotel in Bangkok awards reflect the hard work and close cooperation between Thailand’s private and public sectors plus an ongoing commitment to the highest standards of service and product excellence.

Ms. Sarima said, “I am delighted that Bangkok has once again been rightly recognised as the Best Leisure Destination in the Asia Pacific. We thank all involved in this award. No one will be resting on our laurels. Even after receiving the accolade for the sixth time, we intend to constantly strive to improve for many years to come.

“Bangkok has superb hotels and improving mass transit infrastructure that helps visitors conveniently move around the city. The destination offers no shortage of entertainment options ranging from superb restaurants, excellent shopping and unique Thai local experience.”

This marked the 26th edition of the Business Traveller Asia-Pacific Awards. Each year Business Traveller Asia-Pacific magazine confers the Awards based on votes cast by its readers and subscribers. These include frequent travellers who use airports, airlines and hotels services to visit a variety of regional destinations.

Next year, TAT will continue to maintain the destination’s competitive edge in line with its ‘Amazing Thailand Tourism Year 2018’ marketing plan by providing quality leisure offerings to travellers.

These include but are not limited to ‘Gastronomy Tourism’ highlighting local Thai culinary experiences; ‘Ladies’ Journey’ focusing on the needs and interests of female travellers and ‘Sports Tourism’ for adrenalin enthusiasts who are keen on diving, running marathons or viewing Thailand’s first MotoGP World Championship motorcycle races starting in October 2018.
