Tourism climbs slowly despite low season

while the ETS posted its file on Monday (Sept 9), the normal month-to-month tourism records have yet to be published through the MoTs traditional portal (click on right here.) The 3.41mn foreign arrivals to Thailand generated B0.17 trillion (B170bn) in revenues, a +7.12% boom as compared with August last year, the ETS suggested. The top five source markets for traveler arrivals for August have been given as: China 1,002,971 (+15.62%); Malaysia 384,083 (+0.ninety nine%); Japan 197,924 (+9.03%); South Korea 179,168 (+nine.16%); and Laos 164277 (+8.63%).

however, domestic tourism contracted during August 12 months on yr, with the quantity of home travelers falling 4.19% to 13.2mn, and domestic tourism revenues falling 1.fifty five% to B0.08trn (B80bn), the division noted.
