Thailand dominated as the most popular regional travel destination last year, with three of its cities making the top ten in MasterCard's Asia Pacific Destinations Index 2015.
Bangkok was the most popular city by arrivals, total nights stayed and total amount spent, according to the MasterCard report based on findings sourced primarily from national tourism boards.
The survey is based on 167 destinations from 22 countries across Asia Pacific, and represent 90.1 percent of all international overnight arrivals in the region, MasterCard said.
The Thai capital saw 21.9 million international overnight visitors in 2015, a 28.6 percent growth from the year before, said MasterCard.
"Our Asia Pacific Destinations Index 2015 reveals the continued resilience of the Thailand market for tourism led by a resurgent Bangkok," said Matthew Driver, Asia Pacific group executive of global products & solutions at MasterCard.
