London named world's top city

More people will visit London and spend more in the capital than any other city in the world this year, according to a report out today.

The annual MasterCard Global Destinations Cities Index reveals London is the top destination of choice for international travellers for the third time in four years.

The Index reports the capital is projected to receive 18.7 million international visitors this year - 300,000 more than Bangkok, which was the number-one destination last year.

Paris, Singapore and Dubai make the rest of the top five.

MasterCard predicts tourists will inject over £11billion into UK economy this year.

This year, 67% of London's international visitors will come from other European cities, which MasterCard says is a strong indication of Europe's strengthening economy and the importance of the UK's ties with Europe.
