Bangkok, 29 January, 2020 – Thailand recently took home two awards at Vakantiebeurs 2020, a travel show in Utrecht, the Netherlands, winning top honours for ‘Best Destination 2020’ and ‘Best Cultural Destination’.

The awards were presented by Reisgraag, a Netherlands-based tour company that has been organising the awards since 2012. This year’s results were based on a survey of over 7,600 of its customers through its website. 

“Winning two Reisgraag Awards is another great way to start the New Year 2020,” Director of TAT Paris Office, Miss Worapa Angkhasirisap, said.  “We are very honoured to win the Reisgraag Award 2020 for ‘Best Destination 2020’ and ‘Best Cultural Destination’, especially given the very high ratings the country received from Reisgraag’s valued customers.
