Tokyo, Paris and New York City are the top destinations to bring in 2019, according to Agoda, an online travel agent.

Tokyo’s appeal continues with concerts, parades and light shows on offer.

For Thais, Chiang Mai takes over Bangkok’s crown for the top Thai destination. Japan is the most popular international destination with Tokyo jumping from seventh place last year to third and Osaka making a first appearance in this year’s top 10.

Taiwan is increasingly on the map as a year-end destination for Thai travellers, with Taipei making its first appearance in the top 10.
