Thailand Dominates Travel + Leisure Luxury Awards 2024

Thailand has solidified its status as a premier travel destination, winning multiple accolades at the Travel + Leisure Luxury Awards Asia Pacific 2024. Koh Samui was crowned the Best Island in the Asia Pacific, while Samui Airport secured a commendable fourth place among the region’s best airports. Bangkok also emerged victorious, being named the Best City in the Asia Pacific.

These awards highlight Thailand’s appeal and the exceptional experiences it offers to travelers. The accolades were determined by votes from Travel + Leisure readers between January and March. The magazine praised Koh Samui’s charm, noting its quaint bungalows, picturesque fishing villages, and breathtaking natural beauty, making it a must-visit destination in Thailand.

Government Spokesperson Chai Wacharonke announced that Prime Minister Srettha Thavisin places great emphasis on enhancing Thailand’s tourist destinations to transform the country into a global tourism hub. According to the Pattaya Mail, Wacharonke stated, “These achievements reflect our tourism industry’s ability to deliver exceptional experiences, solidifying Thailand’s position as a top-tier global destination.”

Efforts to boost tourism in the southern islands of Koh Samui, Koh Pha Ngan, and Koh Tao are also underway, as the government addresses pressing issues such as water shortages and illegal businesses. Tourism and Sports Minister Sermsak Pongpanich recently engaged with entrepreneurs from Surat Thani’s Koh Samui and Koh Pha Ngan islands to tackle the province’s tourism challenges.

Additionally, Deputy Transport Minister Manaporn Charoensri announced that Koh Samui’s ambitious new cruise terminal project has attracted significant interest from both local and international investors. The Ministry of Transport plans to review the outcomes of a feasibility study into the project’s Public-Private Partnership (PPP) investment model before submitting it to the cabinet for approval. Manaporn emphasized the Marine Department’s involvement in conducting the study and analysis report.

Following the review, the project will be proposed to the National Economic and Social Development Council (NESDC) for consideration. These developments underscore Thailand’s commitment to enhancing its tourism infrastructure and maintaining its reputation as a world-class travel destination.
