The city of Bangkok has been placed third in the World’s Best Awards 2006, ranked as the world’s third favourite city for tourism–after Italy’s Florence and Rome, respectively.

It’s a repeat honour for Bangkok. The City of Angels copped the American award as Asia’s best every year for the four previous years.

Bangkok governor Apirak Kosayodhin received the “Asia’s Best City 2006” award from America’s Travel + Leisure magazine on Friday.

More than that, Thailand’s northern city of Chiang Mai was voted the world’s fifth favourite tourist city and second in Asia. The magazine conducted surveys of tourists and its readers through its website and questionnaires.

Criteria used to choose which cities are the best in the world include the categories of people, culture, arts and value for money.

Isara Sunthornwat, spokesman for the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA), said receiving the award for the fifth consecutive year proved that the city of Bangkok is recognised by tourists around the world in terms of beautiful landscape and unique culture.

It shows that Thailand is ready to be the hub of Asia’s tourism, he said.

One of the world’s leading consumer travel magazines, Travel + Leisure magazine publishes 900,000 copies each month. (TNA)
