As for Thais travelling; I don't think they will.

Depends where you are looking
there are many places where domestic tourism booms with little foreigners
Try booking a room in any of the more popular places in Khao Yai or khao kho this weekend......
all the nicer places are fully booked
and usually busy every weekend with people from BKK

Is that $39.5 Billion all from the one super affluent super new type of superior tourist that TAT yearn for in the future?

Totally agree. We have a business in Nonthaburi and retain a place down in Cha Am. Over the last few weeks the journey there has become increasingly busier and the beach there  is full of Thai (  not local, it's dead during the week ). Hua Hin is packed and the main highway is bumper to bumper.

Domestic tourism is only recycling money that is aready in Thailand,

Exactly, unless the domestic "tourists" have unlimited funds to spend, from an economic POV it's just taking money away from other sectors!

Seems TOT and the doubtless large staff they employ are getting desperate to justify the huge budget they get!
