Ayutthaya, Thailand has been dismissed as a candidate to host the World Expo 2020, reducing the number of contenders to four, according to reports.

Vying for the hosting rights are four cities - Ekaterinburg, Russia; Dubai, the United Arab Emirates; Izmir, Turkey; and Sao Paulo, Brazil.
The Bureau of International Expositions (BIE) on Tuesday reportedly disqualified Thailand, amid concerns that the bid did not have sufficient support from the government.
