Thailand’s higher tourist number is attributable to the upbeat Asian market, especially Northeast Asia and ASEAN.The FPO pointed out that foreign travelers played an important role in the promotion of the Thai economy. If the political situation remains calm and there are no major natural disasters, the number of foreign visitors to the Kingdom throughout this year could touch 19.5 million, expanding by 22.7 percent and generating over 770 billion THB.
