Thailand to attract Chinese tourists with better tourism environment

Xinhua

In 2019, the Thailand-China Tourism Year, Thailand will hold a series of events and attract Chinese tourists with more effective safety measures and better services.

On November 1st, the director of the Tourism Authority of Thailand told Chinese media that Thailand is preparing a series of major tourism events to attract Chinese tourists, including the Chinese New Year celebrations in downtown Bangkok, the Michelin Food Festival in Phuket and the Thailand Tour of the Lancang-Mekong Cultural Tourism Friendship Motorcade.

In 2018, according to the director, the number of Chinese tourists to Thailand increased by 25 percent year-on-year in the first half, but decreased by 9 percent in the third quarter, and is expected to decrease by 15 percent in the fourth quarter. He said that the decrease is mainly due to the shipwreck in Phuket in July and the security guards’ assault of Chinese tourists at the Bangkok Airport in September hurt the feelings of Chinese tourists, which hurt in turn the feelings of Chinese people.

He said that Thailand is aware of the safety risks and inadequate services in its tourism industry. Thailand is considering free visas on arrival for Chinese tourists. It will make arrangements for Chinese tourists to fill in immigration cards so as to reduce language barriers upon entry.

Thailand will also enhance safety measures for Chinese tourists, strengthen traffic safety, strictly implement the service life limit for tourism vehicles and regulate the rental of tourist vehicles.
