Merry Christmas to the most travelled city in the world

London? Tokyo? Paris?

Not exactly 😜 We know you might guess that one of these hot spots will come tops as the world’s number one travel destination, but if you did, you’d be wrong.

According to a new report from Mastercard, there’s one city that has them all beat for international wanderlusters: Bangkok.

The Thai capital played host to more than 19 million overnight visitors in 2016, surpassing runner-up London for the second year in a row.

Tourists are drawn to the city’s incredible architecture, rich culture and tropical climate (hello, new favorite winter getaway), but perhaps the biggest draw is that fact that visitors spend only $64 a day on average.

So as long as you don’t mind hopping on a 19-plus hour flight, it sounds like Bangkok is worth bumping up on your travel bucket list.

Merry Christmas, Bangkok 🎄🎉🎊🤩🍾
