“InsidersMonkey,” a financial website in the U.S., has unveiled its 2024 report on the “ten countries with the best architecture in Asia.” China ranks first, followed by Thailand, Japan, Malaysia, and India, respectively.

InsidersMonkey has this to say about Thailand: “Thailand is one of the Asian countries with the best architecture. TripAdvisor has many top-rated locations in the country, such as the Jim Thompson House and the Sanctuary of Truth. Pattaya in Thailand is the seventh-best Trending Destination on Trip Advisor for 2024. The country received over 28 million tourists in 2023.”

The website indicated that Asian architecture is particularly well-known for its unique blend of contemporary design styles with traditional architectural techniques. Asian architecture has also received several awards from the International Architecture Awards program. To come up with the ranking of “ten countries with the best architecture in Asia”, the website gathered data from its research and studied rankings from a variety of organizations, as well as considering the number of tourists in each country.
