Phuket anticipates one million Chinese tourists post-Songkran

04/23/2024| 11:46:57 AM|

Last year, Phuket received about 1.7 million Chinese tourists, far behind pre-pandemic levels.

The popular tourist resort island of Phuket is gearing up to welcome an additional influx of 1 million Chinese tourists this year. This forecast comes in the wake of a targeted tourism promotion that took place across three Chinese cities.

The expected surge in visitor numbers is anticipated to have a positive impact on the local economy, with an estimated 40 billion baht in tourism-related revenue predicted to be generated.

The recent measure granting visa-free travel between Thailand and China has been in effect since March 1, and has already begun to influence travel forecasts. It’s predicted that tourism between the two nations could dramatically rise by the end of 2024.
