DHAKA: A new study has ranked Singapore among the top five most popular travel destinations in the world for this year.
The MasterCard Global Destinations Cities Index, released yesterday by MasterCard Worldwide, placed Singapore fourth in visitor arrivals and fifth in tourist spending, in its second ranking of 132 international cities.
In its inaugural list last year, the Republic came in fourth in visitor arrivals and seventh in tourist spending.
The cities are ranked in terms of their international visitor arrivals on direct flights, and how much visitors spent in their destination cities in previous years, reports The Straits Times.
