Thailand makes it into list of 23 “best travel destinations” for 2023

Tourism in Thailand

An American online news and lifestyle publication has included Thailand in its list of the world’s best travel destinations for 2023. Alesandra Dubin, News and Lifestyle editor at Insider.com also singles out an American music festival that will be held in Thailand for the first time this year.

“Coming to Thailand for the first time in 2023 is America’s hip-hop music festival, Rolling Loud, which will be held at the Legend Siam Amusement Park in Pattaya in April. At the same time is Songkran, the festival of water that symbolises the cleansing of spirit and body.”

Nation Thailand reports that Thailand was the 12th destination to be mentioned in the article, following Bhutan, Western Australia, the Cayman Islands, Dubai, France’s Loire Valley, Japan, Las Vegas, Bali in Indonesia, Merida in Mexico, Canouan Island in the Caribbean, and Turkey. In her article, Dubin also praises the choice of luxury hotels in Bangkok.

“I’m also continually impressed by the number of luxury hotels in Bangkok, and Rosewood Bangkok recently re-opened in the prime business and retail district of Ploenchit, which I think is an ideal destination for shoppers and foodies.”

A government spokesman has responded on behalf of the Thai PM, saying Prayut Chan-o-cha is delighted that Thailand has featured in the American publication. According to Anucha Burapachaisri, the PM says Thailand has long been popular with tourists and he’s grateful to the Thai people for making international visitors feel welcome.

“The PM believes Thailand has the potential to attract as many as 20 million tourists this year. This will bring income to the provinces and help make the Thai economy expand more sustainably.”

Meanwhile the humble Pad Thai has made its way into a survey ranking it as the fourth most popular take away by food delivery service ‘GrabHub’ in the US.
