This Is the Most Traveled-To City in the World (and No, It’s Not Paris)

London, Tokyo, Paris—you might guess that one of these hot spots is the number one travel destination in the world, but if you did, you'd be wrong. According to a new report from Mastercard, there's one city that has them all beat for international wanderlusters: Bangkok.

The Thai capital played host to more than 19 million overnight visitors in 2016, surpassing runner-up London for the second year in a row. Tourists are drawn to the city's incredible architecture, rich culture and tropical climate (hello, new favorite winter getaway), but perhaps the biggest draw is that fact that visitors spend only $64 a day on average.

So as long as you don't mind hopping on a 19-plus hour flight, it sounds like Bangkok is worth bumping up on your travel bucket list.
