Asia for Shopaholics and Foodies

Asian Woman shopper

Bangkok is the top 2013 destination city by international visitor arrivals- nearly 16 million to edge out London and Paris.

Bangkok is renowned for food, shopping and nightlife. Bangkok’s Siam Paragon shopping mall is the world’s second-most photographed location on Instagram, trailing only Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi airport.

This is the first time an Asian city has made the top rank since the Global Destination Cities Index was launched in 2010. Singapore sits at 4th place.

Where do you plan to travel in Asia and what’s your main photographic target or shopping destination?

The Rainbow Tourism team has compiled its own list. Thailand is first, with Bangkok, Chiang Mai and Pattaya ranked as top choices for lesbian and gay visitors.

Vietnam and the Mekong Delta region is second-most favoured by the team, while Bali and Lombok put Indonesia third on the list.
