Bangkok First Global City with Top 25 Restaurants Guide by Travelindex

Bangkok (Thailand) – December 1, 2017 (Travelindex) – Travelindex launched today its first Top 25 Restaurants City Guide by Restaurant Rating Index. Bangkok as the top tourism destination in Mastercard’s annual travel index, 20 million overnight visitors and a very diverse and dynamic dining scene was the perfect choice for this first restaurant city guide.

From Michelin-star quality tasting menus to exquisite Thai food or the best sushi you’ll ever have, Bangkok is a gourmet heaven. The city is also the top-ranked destination city by international overnight visitors and Travelindex decided to launch its First Global Restaurant City Guide with the Top 25 Restaurants in the Thai capital.

Restaurant ratings and reviews are critical in the consumer decision making process. The Top 25 Restaurants Guide is based on Travelindex owned and patented, “Restaurant Rating Index”. The 3-tier rating combines the power of crowd wisdom (social media and review sites) with artificial intelligence behavioral algorithms and a zest of human expertise from some of the world’s top culinary experts. The result, the Restaurant Rating Index (RRI), a true and objective measuring standard on a scale between 1 and 100, where 100 is best.

Bernard Metzger, Founder of Travelindex, said “How often are you asked by your friends for restaurant recommendations? Existing guides and websites offer either too much choice, and one gets frustrated by the many layers to go through, or restaurants on curated sites tend to be expensive with Michelin-star quality of cooking and a price tag to match. Our aim, with the Top 25 Restaurants guide series, is to give, diners and foodies alike a tool to fast and easily match their aspirations, location and budget.”

Bernard added “Bangkok is the first in our new series of restaurant city guides and in fact our team of experts is already working on the Singapore and Hong Kong editions”.

The Bangkok guide ranked L’Atelier de Joel Robuchon, the Michelin star world champion, in the top spot while Savelberg, another Michelin star regular and Sra Bua a Thai restaurant offering a modern interpretation of Thai cuisine take respectively second and third positions.

The Top 25 Restaurants Guide brings together not only gourmet dining but the best of all cuisines, with every establishment chosen first and foremost for the quality of cooking. The diversity of cuisine is reflected in the ranking, from the classic French and Italian to hyper-local Thai food restaurant Bo.lan, to Middle Eastern inspired at House on Sathorn and modern American at Bunker.

Why Social Media is not Great for Ecommerce

bounce-exchangeNew York City, NY (United States) – December 5, 2014 – Social Media is wonderful for branding and general marketing, but as far as getting actual conversions, the social media channel is severely lacking, according to a survey conducted by BounceExchange.

The survey found that 83% of online marketers believe social media marketing is important for their businesses, but after analyzing over $1 billion U.S. ecommerce transactions, it found that social media marketing efforts only account for about 1.2% of total site conversions.

Among its other findings:
– Social conversion rates are 51% lower than overall websites average rates.
– Few people actually buy anything they hear or read about on Facebook.
– Followers are often engaging in content that is not directly related to the ultimate product.
– Click rates on follow and share buttons are very low and often distract shoppers which cause shopping cart abandonment.

Bounce Exchange also brings up the fact that Facebook has all but killed the organic reach of Page post, though according to Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook “still overall a very good, organic and free way to reach and communicate with your customers.”

If visitors to social media pages are not buying anything they hear or read about on Facebook, Twitter et al, these consumers use established channels and websites, such as search, online shops and trusted directories. These traditional websites have much higher conversion rates with lower entry costs. Online and digital marketers might decide to reduce further spending ad dollars on Social and spend more time and money on being found on normal websites.

Currently, all major social media platform are testing “buy buttons” to increase social conversions; it might help but as well could end up doing little to compete with other channels overall. Visitors to Facebook pages or reading Twitter tweets aren’t typically looking to shop, they’re looking for content to consume. It’s not like search, online shops or directories where they’re seeking out services and products, often with a booking or buy intention.

For a global presence and higher conversion rates Travelindex offers you a unique travel distribution platform with guaranteed visibility and traffic direct to your own website. Find out more here: www.travelindex.com/content-marketing/

Brunei Darussalam’s theme for the Chairmanship is “Our People, Our Future Together”. This theme stresses the role of the people in ASEAN Member States in advancing cooperation in the areas of political-security, economic and socio-cultural. It also asserts that the region’s future is dependent on how the people of ASEAN move and work together to ensure progress for the development of the whole region.

Leaders of the 10 Association of South Eastern Countries (ASEAN), as well as China, Japan and South Korea, will be joined by Russia, the US and India in a major regional summit in Brunei in mid-October.

The summit provides a valuable opportunity for leaders to engage on key strategic, political and economic issues of common concern, with the aim of promoting stability and economic prosperity in the region. The meeting comes as ASEAN charts the future for the goal of a common market by 2015 as well as increased tensions over territorial disputes in the South China Sea.

ASEAN tourists can experience wild life to city life to snow – capped mountains to dense tropical rainforests; from serene beach life to a bustling city life. No two countries are the same yet their unity is impeccable.

The people of ASEAN live both a simple and complex lifestyle – a sight only to be admired. There are a multitude of ethnic groups inhabiting the region and many still live a traditional way of life.
