Other destinations which ranked lower than Phuket in the poll were; Amsterdam in the Netherlands, Johannesburg in South Africa, Seoul in South Korea and the Great Barrier Reef in Australia.

Phuket continues to grow in popularity as a destination for Chinese tourists; its close proximity to China, sandy white beaches and idyllic lifestyle having great appeal.
