Well now this is interesting! MasterCard recently released their Global Destination Cities Index for 2013 which includes the top destination cities in the world. The research was compiled using public data that was obtained by international visitors and their cross-border spending.
Before we get to the list it’s worth to note that there is definitely a rising travel trend in the Asia/Pacific region. Out of 132 cities ranked in the index, 42 are Asian countries! This is also the first time that an Asian city reaches the top rank since the Index launched in 2010. Bangkok takes the number one spot for 2013, pushing London down one.
Without further adieu, here is a teaser of the 10 most visited cities of 2013 as ranked by MasterCard. For the entire list, please visit their Global Destination Cities Index for 2013
