Bangkok is Travel+Leisure world’s best city

Bangkok is voted by readers of Travel+Leisure magazine as 2010 World’s Best City. The votes were probably cast prior to the demonstrations and riots at the Thai capital earlier this year, but the result is pretty ironic nonetheless.

The Top 10 World’s Best Cities – (1) Bangkok; (2) Chiang Mai, Thailand; (3) Florence, Italy; (4) San Miguel de Allende, Mexico; (5) Rome, Italy; (6) Sydney, Australia; (7) Buenos Aires, Argentina; (8) Oaxaca, Mexico; (9) Barcelona, Spain; (10) New York City, USA.

Top 10 Best Asian Cities – (1) Bangkok; (2) Chiang Mai; (3) Kyoto, Japan; (4) Siem Reap, Cambodia; (5) Udaipur, India; (6) Jaipur, India; (7) Hong Kong, China; (8) Hanoi, Vietnam; (9) Tokyo, Japan; (10) Beijing, China.

Ouch, Kuala Lumpur is not on the list… ain’t surprising though.
