Bangkok Named Best Leisure Destination in Asia Pacific
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. William Tang Tat Chi, a Hong Kong-born veteran fashion designer, at a ceremonial luncheon 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 to The Nation, “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."
“The destination offers no shortage of entertainment options ranging from superb restaurants, excellent shopping and unique Thai local experiences,” she added.
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 hotel services to visit a variety of regional destinations.
