Not sure 4.7% growth in high season from a developing low base market as opposed to mature tourist market is particularly impressive. The big increase is in sea arrivals, probably cruise ships passing through for a couple of days. Hope they aren't too badly hit in coming months with the developing crisis. 

Where did you get 4.7% growth from?

That´s great news! Maybe the bigger part of all foreign criminalty in Thailand can move to Vietnam too. Then this nice country can go back to what it once was.

From the official link that you provided, its there at the top of page. 

You are focusing on this:


"Total international arrivals in 2 months 2020 reached 3.236.856 arrivals, up 4,8% over the same period in 2019."


These figures are definitely skewed by the corona virus.


Look at the percentages in their entirety, including the downturn due to the corona virus.

2/2020 vs last month
