Thailand most hospitable nation, survey shows

Thailand is considered the most hospitable nation among business travellers in a survey by Booking.com. It is also made the top 5 for best food.

Booking.com, a leader in connecting business travellers with accommodations globally, surveyed over 4,500 business travellers across eight countries.

The survey shows that business travel is no longer just about business, with half confirming their favourite thing about travelling internationally for business is the chance to experience a new culture (50 per cent) or to see a new city (46 per cent). About 20 per cent of business travellers take the opportunity to extend their business trip to a holiday. 

As many say the chance to experience new cultures is the best thing about travelling on business, Thailand is considered the most hospitable nation. Almost a third (29 per cent) of business travellers say that Thailand is the most hospitable country to visit, which also made the top 5 for best food. Similarly nearly a third (30 per cent) of respondents enjoy trying new foods with business travellers considering Italy (36 per cent) to have the best food, followed closely by France (35 per cent).

Business travellers consider Germany the easiest country to travel in (28 per cent), just ahead of Singapore (27 per cent), though Singapore is also considered to have the most convenient airport to the city (32 per cent), as well as the best airport food (30 per cent).
