Thailand on track for 10 million tourist with the low season coming in

By the end of this month, the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) projects that 10 million international visitors will have visited Thailand, with at least 2 million coming each month during the off-season.

According to TAT Governor Yuthasak Supasorn, Thailand has consistently recorded more than 50,000 arrivals each day, showing that the country can welcome at least 2 million tourists each month during the off-season.

The TAT is hopeful that the newly elected prime minister would support equitable distribution throughout the tourism supply chain in order to advance tourism development as a result of the formation of a new administration. Only a few groups, mostly big players, are currently profiting from the increase in tourism. The competitiveness of the nation would also be improved by strategies for inclusive growth, high-quality visitor attraction, and longer visitor stays.Yuthasak indicated that the daily cap of 84,000 approvals for Chinese tourists’ visa applications has not changed. While coordinating with Chinese agents via TAT’s China offices to make sure they are well-prepared with the necessary paperwork to speed up the approval process, all pertinent authorities are working to find a solution to this problem.

As the peak season for the Mice (meetings, incentives, conventions, and exhibitions) sector is quickly approaching, Yuthasak expressed optimism that these challenges will be resolved by the third quarter or by August. As a result of a large increase in airline capacity throughout the year and the fact that a lot of independent travelers are also arriving with visas-on-arrival, TAT is still on track to welcome 5 million Chinese tourists this year.In order to promote net zero tourism, TAT, Thairath, and the Thailand Greenhouse Gas Management Organization signed a memorandum of understanding yesterday.

The agreement focuses on supply chain development and awareness-raising through seminars in order to promote collaboration in the tourism sector toward sustainable tourism goals.

According to Yuthasak, TAT intends to create a tourism carbon exchange market by 2030, enabling business owners to buy and sell carbon credits in order to meet the goal of net zero tourism.
