wait a minute..


if visitors from china, europe, oceania and the middle east are down but tourism is still up where are the new tourists coming from?


russia, india? they dont have the numbers to offset europe never mind china, so are they counting surrounding countries too?


this cannot be good either way (well for thailand, good for me :D)
