Govt confident more tourists will arrive in Thailand this year

The Thai government is confident the number of foreign tourists visiting Thailand will soar to 28.8 million by the end of this year.

According to Deputy Spokesperson to the Prime Minister’s Office, Major General Sansern Keawkamnerd, the tourism sector has been doing well since the beginning of February.

More than 17 million tourists have visited the country, spending around 818 billion baht during their stay. The government believed there would be more tourists arriving in the country than what the Ministry of Tourism and Sports has projected by 1 million people.

Thailand will have earned estimated revenues of 1.6 trillion baht in total by the end of 2015. A large number of Chinese tourists are expected to come to Thailand in October during their national day holiday period due to the weakening baht.

300,000 more Americans are also forecast to travel to Thailand as the American economy has begun to improve. They usually stay in the country around 14-15 days each time they visit Thailand.
