Bangkok vows to reclaim top tourist destination title

The Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) is trying to restore confidence in order to reclaim its title as the top tourist destination from Kyoto, Japan.

Deputy Bangkok governor Amorn Kitchawengkul said Bangkok had lost its top tourist destination position to Kyoto and fell to third place in a survey by the Travel + Leisure magazine this year due to the political demonstrations.

Bangkok's city hall will discuss efforts to restore confidence among tourists with operators of fivestar hotels whose client numbers have dropped by half, he said.
