Tourism officials looking to revive Chinese visits to Thailand

The government is to issue a tourism handbook for October aimed at reviving Chinese tourism to the Kingdom after seeing a drop off in recent months.

Minister of Tourism and Sports, Weerasak Kowsurat has made known that the O So ThoMagazine for October will be titled “End of Rains, Start of Winter” and will focus on end of year travel.

The magazine will focus on attracting a range of different tourists, including those from China. The number of Chinese tourists to Thailand dropped off following a major boat accident earlier this year that claimed the lives of several Chinese visitors.

Tourism authorities are now seeking to reassure all tourists of Thailand’s safety and are considering a visa waiver to attract Chinese visitors.

Mr. Weerasak indicated Thailand is to emphasize environmentally friendly tourism from now on, and encourage travelers to avoid the use of foam and plastic in national parks as well as to engage in sustainable behavior.
