Flat growth in tourist arrivals to Chiang Mai

Recommended Posts

After Loi Krathong the hotel and especially the hostel bookings are low again. Chinese prefer good hotels and will never stay in dormitories like western backpackers. Also they like Airbnb. If the new ASTRA with more then 600 Condos and the ad, that they are "Airbnb friendly", the hotels will loose more guests.

4 weeks ago I was at the Eat@Rincome restaurant. They told me that the U Hotel (4*) is fully booked - by Koreans.

Nation can't even get Loy Krathong Day right.   So don't bother with any of the other drivel.

How can 4,000 hotels add only 10,000 rooms ?

The BEST advertising for ANY City/Country is by

Word of Mouth. Scamming tourists will NOT help

Tourism as will a strong Thai currency.

Agree with the poster that said CM is over built

in the hospitality sector.

The main factors influencing a tourist’s buying decision usually include room price, competitiveness, and marketing strategies such as plane ticket prices, said Bungsrithong, adding that the cost of air travel to Chiang Mai would rise in line with increasing number of visitors to the province. 

And the common denominator is the high strength of the Baht.......QED

Lanterns is a hazard to planes flying to get into the Chiang Mai airport and also might cause fire on rooftops. 

 

The lanterns ban is lifted only for certain remote area that airplanes don't fly low and not many houses there.
