Thailand welcomes one million arrivals in 10 days


PUNDITS were right in predicting that Thailand’s tourism sector will remain healthy despite the bombings in Bangkok earlier this year.

Attributing the surge to the year-end celebrations, the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) said visitor numbers rose from 25 million to 26 million in just 10 days.

“November and December are among the most pleasant times to visit Thailand. During this period… there are numerous festive activities and happenings throughout the country. But of course, in a country as diverse as Thailand, tourists can enjoy their journey at any time of the year,” said H.E Kobkarn Wattanavrangkul, Thailand’s minister of tourism and sports.

Thailand aims to receive 28.8 million international visitors by end-2015.
