Mr Sansern said the figure of Chinese tourists increased almost 90 per cent year-on-year, while predicting that it could reach 3 million by the year-end.  Meanwhile, the TAT has seen worldwide travellers grow 15 per cent in Q1 to over 8 million people, with Chinese tourists still ranking as the countrys biggest market.
