Bangkok is 10th most popular romantic getaway in the world

  • Bangkok is the 10th most popular Valentine’s Day destination in 2019
  • Solo travellers make Bangkok sixth most popular Valentine’s Day destination in the world

Thailand, February 4, 2019 – Romance is in the air and it’s clear many loved-up travellers are too as they head to Bangkok this February for Valentine’s Day. Advanced booking data from Airbnb, the leading people-to-people travel platform, shows that Bangkok is the tenth most popular Valentine’s Day destination in the world this year.

Known as the Venice of the East, Airbnb travellers will be falling in love all over again this Valentine’s Day as they get off-the-beaten path to explore local neighbourhoods in the city that they wouldn’t otherwise have known.

Beyond quality time spent with their loved one, travellers are now in search of a magical travel experience that is both healthy and authentic to Thailand. Locals and travellers from China, Southeast Asia, Hong Kong and the United States, are not only exploring Bangkok, but are also taking day trips out to secondary provinces such as Ayutthaya and Saraburi.

Following the successful first series of Channel 3’s Love Destiny (Buppesannivas), destinations that have been influenced by popular Thai TV dramas are seeing increased interest from travellers. Here are some Homes and Experiences where Airbnb travellers are looking to rekindle their love, enjoy the historic and cultural sites, and immerse in the local way of life

Here are some of the top ten most popular Valentine’s Day destinations in the world:

  1. Christchurch (NZ)
  2. Los Angeles (US)
  3. Queenstown (NZ)
  4. Paris (FR)
  5. Auckland (NZ)
  6. London (GB)
  7. Miami (US)
  8. Twizel (NZ)
  9. West Coast (NZ)
  10. Bangkok (TH)

 

While Valentine’s Day is traditionally considered a time for couples travel, Airbnb data uncovers a new trend: the growth in solo travel. Advanced booking data for 2019 shows that people travelling solo on Valentine’s Day this year has increased 98% year-on-year, globally, with Paris being the most booked destination by solo Airbnb travellers.

 

Closely followed by Los Angeles (US), London (GB), New York (US) and San Francisco (US), Bangkok is the sixth most popular Valentine’s Day destination in the world for solo travellers having seen almost 72% growth in solo bookings from 2018 to 2019.

Places to stay are diverse with something to suit all tastes, including this minimalist studio with pool in the heart of the city.
