"The whole story is sort of about a series fragment of a story, that have to do with an island that's isolated, where a lot of people come there to escape, to run away from things or to build a little bit of new world for themselves. And a place as an outsider I can't fully understand what’s happening."

TITLE: BANGKOK TOPS WORLD'S TRAVEL HOT SPOT

The Bangkok is this year's number one city for travel. This is announced by MasterCard in its third annual Global Destination Cities Index.

While London reached the top spot in 2012, it was edged by the slimmest of margins with only about 25,000 visitors separating the two, a difference of about one percent.

The study looked at the highest international visitor numbers in 2013, with London, Paris, Singapore, and New York rounding out the top five.

A noticeable trend in this year's report is the dominance of the Asia Pacific region. Of the 132 cities ranked, 42 are Asian countries.

About Bangkok's number one ranking, Bangkok governor Sukhumbhand Paribatra said that Bangkok has emerged at the top of this year's index with tributes to the city's hospitality industry, the transport industry and food and beverage and catering industry.

The MasterCard Index of Global Destination Cities ranks cities in terms of the number of their total international visitor arrivals and the cross-border spending by these same visitors in the destination cities, and gives visitor and passenger growth forecasts for 2013.
