Ctrip is a travel portal with 300 million members and 30 million authentic reviews. The company was founded in 1999 in Shanghai and now employs over 30,000 people at branches located in major cities in mainland China, Taiwan, Singapore, Korea, Japan, USA, UK and Australia. In a crowded market Ctrip is a hugely successful organisation.
The objective of Ctrip is to promote gastronomy tourism for Chinese tourists. Since 2016 Ctrip have provided a Ctrip Gourmet List for China. The list has provided a useful list of recommended restaurants and has proven popular with tourists. The restaurants are selected by 16 gastronomic committee members, 500 personal judges and 1,500 “gourmet hunters”.
In June, Ctrip launched their Ctrip Gourmet List for Thailand and we are delighted to find out The 9th Floor is one of the selected restaurants for the Ctrip Gourmet List.
