I have been living in Bangkok for almost 10 years so I am very delighted to know that where I live named best city in the world for the third year in a row by Travel & Leisure magazine:-)

Bangkok, Thailand’s capital city, has once again received the highest score from Travel+Leisure Magazine’s online survey of the World’s Best Cities in 2012. This is the third year in a row that Bangkok has maintained the leading position in this survey of international travelers.  The scoring for the World’s Best Cities in the Travel+Leisure survey was based on six criteria including sights, culture & arts, restaurants & food, people, shopping, and value.
