Koh Samui was named the best island in Asia Pacific while Bangkok was awarded the best city in the region as voted by Travel+Leisure, a leading travel and lifestyle magazine.

The awards were based on votes from Travel+Leisure readers between January and March 2024.

Samui Airport ranked fourth among the best airports in the Asia-Pacific region. It is located in Ko Samui’s Bo Phut subdistrict. The airport is roughly 2 km north of the main city and largest resort center on the island, Chaweng.

The magazine emphasized Koh Samui's charm, noting its small bungalows, fishing villages, and stunning natural scenery, which make it one of the most visited destinations in Thailand.

These recognitions highlight Thailand’s potential in the tourism sector, showcasing its beauty and the convenience offered to travelers.

Chai Wacharonke, government spokesperson, announced that Prime Minister Srettha Thavisin prioritizes the development of Thailand’s tourist destinations to make the country a global tourism hub.

The spokesperson noted that these achievements reflect the Thai tourism industry’s capability to provide exceptional experiences for tourists, enhancing the country's status as a premier global destination.
