Mastercard have just released their annual Global Destinations Cities Index, revealing the most-visited cities of the year based on international visitors.
Asian destinations dominate the list this year, with Bangkok in top-ranked position receiving 21.47 million overnight visitors. Singapore and Kuala Lumpur also saw an increase in travellers, moving up one rank to sixth and seventh respectively.
The report also notes that unsurprisingly “the peak seasons of the destination cities clearly reflect their climate”. Dubai, for example, is more popular in winter, while London and New York City are favoured in spring and summer.
