Travel+Leisure magazine ranked Koh Samui as the world’s seventh-best island and the second-best in Asia in its 2021 survey.
The votes for the “World’s Best Awards 2021” were collected from readers between Jan. 11 and May 10, as destinations across the world are slowly reopening to tourists.
The top two spots were held by Greece’s Milos and Folegandros islands, followed by St. Vincent and the Grenadines. India’s Andaman Islands led the list of the five best in Asia, followed by Thailand’s Koh Samui and Bali in Indonesia.
Meanwhile, four Bangkok hotels were voted onto the Travel+Leisure magazine’s list of the world’s Top 100 Hotels for this year.
The hotels are Capella Bangkok (4), Mandarin Oriental Bangkok (41), Four Hotel Bangkok at Chao Phraya River (55) and The Sukhothai Bangkok (73).
