The Residences at The St. Regis Bangkok continues to stay on course in preparation for the scheduled October launch of this luxurious, urban dwelling in Thailand's modern metropolis.  Commitment and financing from Minor International PLC, the project's developer, remain strong.

In addition, confidence in Bangkok is buoyed by Travel + Leisure, a publication that caters to the luxury travel market, recently naming Bangkok as number one in the magazine's 2010 "World's Best City" list.

"The Travel + Leisure ranking affirms what we have known about Bangkok all along," said William E. Heinecke, Chairman and CEO of Minor International PLC.  "We are undeterred in our vision to provide the ultimate urban living experience in this wonderful city, the first destination in Thailand to feature St. Regis Residences.  We continue to trust in Bangkok's appeal as a world-class destination, and have every confidence that this is the ideal market for this special St. Regis offering."

The results of Travel + Leisure's survey of readers who voted on the world's top destinations appear in the July issue.  Bangkok is ranked as the top city in the world, followed by Chiang Mai.  Rounding out the top 10 cities across the globe are Florence (Italy), San Miguel de Allende (Mexico), Rome (Italy), Sydney (Australia), Buenos Aires (Argentina), Oaxaca (Mexico), Barcelona (Spain) and New York City (the United States).  This is the second time readers voted Bangkok as the top city in the world.  In 2008, it was ranked number one on Travel + Leisure's list over metropolises such as Buenos Aires and Cape Town, South Africa.
