28/09/2009 - Phuket makes top ten overseas destinations list

According to statistics published by the Australian hotel booking site, wotif.com, Phuket has made the top ten overseas destinations for the second year running, as Australians continue to increase their travel within Asia.

The rise in popularity for resort islands, such as Phuket has come at the expense of major cities such as Paris, Dublin and Rome, which no longer make the top ten. Auckland, New Zealand, Wellington, New Zealand, Singapore, Bangkok, Thailand, Bali, Indonesia, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, London, UK, Hong Kong (Kowloon), China and Hong Kong (Island), China are the other top ten destinations for Australian travellers.

This will be welcome news for the Tourist Authority of Thailand (TAT) who also announced a growth in passenger numbers for the month of August.  4.6 million passengers passed through Thailands' airports in August, an increase of 5.4% compared to last years figures.
