Main excuses for the lack of visitors were the high value of the baht and the world economy. 

No mention was made of regional competitors in the report.

Pipat Ratchakitprakarn’s presence created a stir but there were few concrete details as a result of his visit to the island. 

He hinted that the government had plans for the baht and stimulus measures to lure foreign tourists. He promised a “new group” of tourists, more domestic tourism and sustainable tourism. 

All would be revealed next month, he said before handing out shields to brave Thais who had helped tourists escape drowning and honest ones who had returned wallets. 

Then he was off to examine a waste disposal area in Maret and take in a trip to the Na Muang waterfall.
