Despite the devastating COVID-19 pandemic affecting countries around the world, the Thai capital of Bangkok continues to gain popularity among international visitors. It was recently named Best Place for Work and Vacation by a property search website.
A UK-based vacation rental research website, Holidu.co.uk, named Bangkok the number one place to ‘work’, a word that describes both work and vacation, in 150 cities surveyed in the world.
Bangkok Governor Pol Gen Aswin Kwanmuang said several criteria were taken into consideration in finding a suitable destination for those looking to both work and relax.
These criteria include monthly rents, after-work drink costs, average daily sunshine hours, internet and Wi-Fi speeds, and interesting events.
The governor said Bangkok is a culturally diverse city and home to world-class tourist attractions and famous street foods, with a lower cost of living than many countries.
He said local residents of Bangkok are friendly with foreign visitors.
