Travel + Leisure magazine is supposed to be one of the best magazines out there which serve as a guide to your travel and leisure queries. It brings out various lists that rank the top in everything ranging from the best hotels, the best resorts, the best beaches, and what not. This time around they have brought out the list of the Best Asian City Hotels, and The Peninsula Bangkok has topped this one.
It is part of the magazine’s 2010 World’s Best Awards readers’ survey. 10 other Asian hotels also came in the list of top 100 hotels globally, and the Peninsula Bangkok was placed seventh overall. Singapore Airlines got the coveted first rank in the aviation category.
The editor-in-chief of Travel+Leisure Southeast Asia, Matt Leppard said, “The strong showing of Asian properties and destinations is really no surprise. Asia, and particularly Southeast Asia, continues to offer some of the most attractive world-class properties, located in such varied locations as exotic rain forests, vibrant cities, and even on water; with such a choice, Southeast Asia will remain one of the world’s most popular regions.” That is very true, and the large number of tourists flocking to these Southeast Asian destinations is a proof of that.
