Yesterday, the travel site named Bangkok as both inexpensive and desirable to travelers already living in Southeast Asia. The company took into account round-trip airfare from within the region, seven nights of hotel costs, meals three times daily and visiting some of the major attractions.

Of their top ten destinations, Bangkok came in at the lowest cost at just THB43,451 for the trip per person. Costwise, from second-cheapest to most expensive were: Cebu Island (Philippines) at THB45,868; Luzon (Philippines) at THB46,197; Boracay (Philippines) at THB52,352; Bali at THB48,957; Phuket at THB49,861; Singapore at THB59,661; Seoul at THB66,773, Hong Kong at THB66,482; and Tokyo at THB70,431.

In terms of desirability, or where people wanted to travel to the most, the list looked like this, from most desirable to least: Bali, Luzon, Hong Kong, Bangkok, Tokyo, Singapore, Boracay, Phuket, Cebu Island and Seoul, reported Bangkok Post.
