Ayutthaya was included in a list of 50 cities worldwide that travelers should visit after the Covid-19 crisis.
The Forbes Advisor website included the central province, which should lead to an increase in visitors, government spokesman Thanakorn Wangboonkongchana said.
Forbes described Ayutthaya as the world’s greatest city in the 17th century, not far from Bangkok and a proper destination for day trippers from the capital.
Ayutthaya is one of only eight Asian places included in the list. The others are Harbin, China; Bhutan; Assam, India; Lombok, Indonesia; Taipei, Uzbekistan and Doha, Qatar.
