Pattaya welcomes 2.5 million tourists since the reopening. Russians were the majority

Thailand’s Tourism Authority (TAT) reported that Pattaya has already hosted up to 2.5 million visitors since the nation officially opened its doors to tourists in April 2023.

Despite the fact that it is currently the off-season, the director of TAT’s Pattaya office, Ms. Anoma Wongyai, informed Thai media that Pattaya continues to attract a sizable number of financially independent tourists (FITs).

To date, 2.5 million visitors have visited Pattaya since Thailand fully opened its borders to tourists through April 2023, of which 1.2 million are Thai nationals and 860,000 are tourists from other countries. The latter group was primarily made up of Vietnamese, Koreans, Chinese, Taiwanese, and Russians.

They contributed to Pattaya’s revenue of about 18 billion baht, according to Anoma.

7.8 million individuals have visited Chonburi overall, of which 4.8 million were local tourists and 3.2 million were overseas visitors. According to Anoma, these tourists contributed to Chonburi earning approximately 86 billion Baht.

The TAT director anticipates that even more tourists will visit the province in the third and fourth quarters of 2023 because there are so many additional events and activities planned. These events include the Pattaya Marathon, the Bikini Beach Run, the Pattaya Fireworks Festival, the Pattaya Jazz Festival, the Seafood Festival, and many others.
