Thailand named best destination by Danish magazine
For the second time in three years, Thailand has been named the world's best tourism destination by a leading European travel magazine, while the country's state-run Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) was honoured by Australia's travel writers.
Juthaporn Rerngronasa, Deputy Governor for Marketing of the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) announced that Thailand again won the "Best Tourism Country" distinction through votes from 2,000 tourists and tourism operators conducted by Denmark's travel magazine "Stand By".
Presentation of the first award took place during the 12th Danish Travel Awards 2007. Thailand earlier received the same award in 2005.
Meanwhile, Mrs. Juthaporn said the TAT won "The Best International Tourism Organization" distinction from the Australian Society of Travel Writers (ASTW).
TAT received the award as it had supported Australian writers and journalists, who travelled to write articles or produce documentaries in Thailand.
