Which of the world’s cities is visited by the largest number of international tourists? According to the new Global Destination City Index, Bangkok is now at the top of the list. The Thai capital, which beat out London by just 1 percent, draws the bulk of its tourists from China as well as Tokyo and Singapore.
Travelers on the program will tour Bangkok’s exceptional museums and dazzling palaces; discover northeast Thailand; and continue to Cambodia to explore Phnom Penh, known for its French colonial architecture, and legendary Angkor. Olivier Bernier, erudite scholar, author and lecturer at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, will accompany us on our exploration of this magical part of the world.
