BANGKOK, 21st April 2019 (NNT) – Lt Gen Werachon Sukondhapatipak, the deputy spokesman of the Thai government, revealed that Minister Gen Prayut Chan-o-cha was happy after hearing that Bangkok has been named the most popular destination for Japanese tourists during their Golden Week, a five-day long holiday which begins in late April.

The survey was conducted by Agoda, a renowned global online travel agency. Pattaya and Phuket were also ranked among the most popular cities, at the 4th and the 10th respectively.

“Japanese tourists are among the top 5 nationalities of foreign tourists visiting Thailand, particularly Bangkok where there are many beautiful attractions, delicious food, not-too-high cost of living, and friendly Thai people. The two countries’s cultures are also quite similar. They can go along quite well,”
