TripAdvisor has named Bangkok among the top five “Most Affordable Cities” worldwide in the annual TripIndex Cities cost-comparison study, released in June.
Thailand’s capital city ranked fourth out of a possible 60 international cities, and second amongst Asian destinations. Based on TripAdvisor’s TripIndex formula, the total cost of a two-person, three-night summer trip in Bangkok is $822.
The TripIndex helps travellers identity the destinations that offer the best value by comparing the cost of a three-night trip during the summer in 59 key tourists cities around the world, taking into account typical travel costs for two. For each day, the Index factors a four-star hotel stay, an organized tour or activity at local attractions, a round-trip taxi ride, as well as lunch and dinner. The study was conducted ahead of the summer travel period by TripAdvisor with Ipsos, an independent research firm.
