 There are no more Europeans: Thailand announced incredible figures for the tourist flow

The Thai government announced incredible numbers: according to them, from January 1 to September 8, the country received more than 5 million tourists, but Europeans are no longer among the leaders in the number of tourists. Both Chinese and Russian tourists have disappeared from this list. And the main share in the incoming tourist flow to Thailand now belongs to vacationers from neighboring countries, primarily from Malaysia, who supply short-term tourists to the kingdom.

in the period from January 1 to September 8, 5,018,172 foreign tourists arrived. This was stated by the speaker of the Thai government Tanakorn Vanbunkongchana. At the same time, the leading markets turned out to be exclusively Asian.

According to the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT), the largest group of tourists came from Malaysia, with 751,397 arrivals. India was next with 480,825 arrivals. In third place was Laos with 310,464 arrivals. Cambodia ranked fourth in terms of the number of holidaymakers in Thailand, with a total of 249,084 arrivals. Last month, the UK was among the leaders, but at the moment there are no Europeans on the list.

At the same time, tourism officials have quite optimistic forecasts for the future. The TAT estimates that the number of tourists will reach 10 million based on advance bookings of flights and hotels for the next three months.
