IT SEEMS Asia reigns in the hearts' of Singaporeans.
Booking website Hotels.com revealed its eighth annual Hotel Price Index last month and also surveyed Singaporean travellers' most-loved destinations.
In the top 10 were all Asian destinations with Hong Kong taking over as the new hot favourite toppling all-time favourite Tokyo.
As room rates in Tokyo, Osaka and Bangkok fell, Hong Kong had one of the highests jumps in Asia. But it seems even that did not deter visitors from going there.
The survey attribute Hong Kong's strong rise to a peaking influx of business, as well as leisure travellers.
Bangkok was in second seed and Taipei was third.
Tokyo slipped away from Singaporeans' hearts after the March earthquake in 2011. Another Japanese destination - Osaka - also felt the effects in the aftermath of natural disaster as it fell from sixth to 11th.
Outside Asia, London was the most popular destination, followed by Paris.
There were three US destinations in the list with New York, Las Vegas and San Francisco, the latter being overtaken by the Big Apple as the number one choice in the United States
