Targets of 10% that were usually seen each year were falling well short at about 2-3%. 

Amid the relative gloom of tourism and sports minister Pipat Ratchakitprakran’s visit came news about who is visiting Koh Samui the most. 

Thais remain tops at about 1.7 million up to October this year.

But figures were given for foreign visitors as follows:

1. Germans 392,095

2. Chinese 334,099

3. Eastern Europeans 245,987

4. Australians 197,772

5. British 155,359. 

These were the top five apart from Thais.
