Russian tourists began to push in Thailand

Russian tourists began to push in Thailand and pushed back to third place. The reason is the return of Chinese tourists. True, from the point of view of the Thai press, Thailand “benefited” that China lifted pandemic bans. However, among the main markets, Russia remains the only conditionally non-Asian market.

According to data released by the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT), 115,985 tourists arrived in Thailand from Russia in April, and in general, since January 1 to May 12, 2023 – 710,768 people. At the same time, the number of tourists from China over the same period amounted to almost a million, more precisely 955,663 people.

Thus, China “moved” Russia from second place in terms of the number of tourists supplied to Thailand. Nevertheless, the country expects to receive the first million tourists from Russia, although according to forecasts, this will happen only in September.

At the same time, neighboring Malaysia remains in first place, having already supplied Thailand with more than 1.4 million tourists, including account for short trips. The fourth and fifth place is also occupied by tourists from Asian countries. In fourth place is South Korea with a result of 573 thousand tourists, followed by India – 507 thousand.
