Thailand’s cabinet on Tuesday acted to extend a stimulus package for the tourism industry which would otherwise end on March 31 for another year as proposed by the Ministry of Tourism and Sports with the aim to persuade more tourists to visit the kingdom, according to deputy government spokesman Watchara Kannika.

However, when compared to the figures to 2008, the number of tourists was down by 8.21 per cent which affected income around 3.38 per cent.
