Travel + Leisure Magazine has released its 2012 World’s Best” list, with Bangkok voted as the top city in the world, followed by Chiang Mai, in the annual poll voted on by the American luxury travel magazine’s readers.

We’re quite certain there has to be a bit of celebrating going on in the offices of Thailand’s Tourism Authority, which has been battling hard to bring back the tourists following the recent unrest in Bangkok. (Though it must be noted the Travel + Leisure survey was completed before this year’s mass protests.)

Rounding out the top 10 on the “World’s Best City” list are Florence, Istanbul, Cape Town, Sydney, Rome, New York City, Hong Kong, Kyoto (Japan) and Paris.

Thailand’s hotels did well too, with the Peninsula Bangkok rising from No. 4 in 2011 to No. 1 in 2012, while Thai Airways was voted the world’s ninth best international airline.
