Chinese tourist survey: Thailand is number one for us - but 3% say they are never coming back

BANGKOK: -- A tourism survey of Chinese visitors conducted at Bangkok's main airports over the last month painted a generally rosy picture of attitudes towards Thailand.

 

But the majority of respondents were not sure they would come back and a small percentage said they never would.

 

The survey was conducted by Kasikorn who asked questions to 400 tour groups between August 15 and September 15, reported Manager Online.

 

Some 78.1 per cent of first time visitors named Thailand as the number one tourist destination in Asia. Attractions in order of preference put natural beauty at the top of the list followed by entertainment, sports, Thai food and shopping in that order.

 

Their number one favorite place to visit was Bangkok followed by Pattaya, Phuket and Chiang Mai. It was noted that Krabi and Samui are on the rise with direct flights available to the south from the Chinese mainland.

 

The Grand Palace and Wat Phra Kaew was the top place to visit.

 

But while the survey painted a good picture for the nation's tourism with the Chinese there were some less than ideal figures.

 

Some 41.1 per cent of respondents said they would definitely come back to the kingdom while 56% said they were not sure about that.

 

And nearly 3% said they wouldn't come back again.

Why not state the positive that 41% will be coming back and only 3% are not coming back.

What percentage of tourists world wide take holidays in the same place twice, assuming they can afford to take holidays abroad every year?

Interesting question, many people from Europe vacation year after year in Spain. I think you would have to compare it like somebody from the USA going to Florida every winter. Sure Thailand is foreign but it is in Asia. I get what you are saying but don't think it is that simple.

Thailand needs to hire a Chinese director and do another movie like "Lost in Thailand"   It did for Chinese tourism what "The Beach" did for the white guy numbers.

 

But the effects wear off...  It's like putting on deodorant.  Ya gotta repeat when things -like tourist numbers- start stinking again.

I run into independent Chinese tourists all the time.  The only way I know they're Chinese is because they're speaking Mandarin.  Otherwise, they could be mistaken for  Thai, Korean, Japanese, Singaporean, etc.

 

They're kind of like Texans in that regard.  Most of us are okay people.  But when you do run into a buttwad from Texas, you will absolutely know he's a Texan.

41% saying they would return is a low number. When tourists really enjoy a holiday, they would answer that they would come back, even they don't have plans to come back. For instance, this Irish survey indicated indicates 77% would come return.

And is this survey, 91% said they would return to Korea:

Of course all surveys need to be taken with a grain of salt...

 

Tourism in Thailand has been growing by tapping new markets, while losing share of existing markets. After China, what is left?

Chinese bags are packed

and ready to go

sitting there outside the door

everyone is saying "goodbye"

 

TAT kisses them and smiles at them

tells them that it waits for them

holds them like it won't ever let them go...

'cause they're leaving on a jet plane

and 3 percent won't be back again:

"Oh Lee, Wong, Ching and Chong,

I hate to see you go..."
