[BANGKOK] Thailand saw a 4.91 per cent increase in tourist arrivals in January year-on-year, after a 7.7 per cent rise in December, the tourism ministry said on Friday.

 

The 3.72 million tourists spent 196 billion baht (S$8.46 billion) in January, up 2.4 per cent from a year earlier.

 

Visitors from China, Thailand's biggest source of tourists, jumped 10.29 per cent in January from a year earlier.

 

Foreign tourist receipts account for about 12 per cent of Thailand's gross domestic product.

I have been in and out of Don Muang 4 times over the past ten days and have to agree on this as it was always packed and very busy. I returned from Singapore a couple of nights back at 12.00 midnight and two flights from China had just arrived ....  so anyone who doesn't think the numbers aren't up should visit Don Muang and Suvarnarmbumi airports.  Just saying what I witnessed .....

Massive amount of Chinese and Indian tourist pouring in huge amount of foreign currency. Massive amount of FDI and foreign currency inflow into Thai stock and bind market. Baht is appreciating unabated. Soon it will be $25/USD (2022/2023). What would happen to lots of retirees whose income won't meet requirements? Only the 800K "money in the bank" people will be the winners.

So you are suggesting all these extra tourists are arriving at midnight which is perhaps why all the other TV members who contradict you are not aware of all these extra Chinese millions who are entering during the hours of darkness ?

Most flights from China come in the wee hours of the night. Massive amounts of Chinese tourists are pouring in

Don't confuse them with facts. Their mind is already made up!

I was in Hua Hin about 3 weeks ago. Place was packed. Seemed to be lots of Scandinavians as always.

Also at Suvarnabhumi last Saturday night.

Place was jammed.

Onera must be a shill for the Bank of Thailand. Give us facts about now much money is flowing in to Thailand from China and India not some blank statement like you did. Give us your sources and please don't try and say the Bank of Thailand. Also you made the really broad assumption that the Baht will be only 25 to the U. S. without providing one iota of facts to back that statement up. You are clueless and nothing more than a sh..it disturbed.
