In a media conference held jointly with the Malaysian Association of Tour and Travel Agents (MATTA) in Kuala Lumpur on March 9, TAT marketing manager (Malaysia and Brunei) Richard Lim Chew Lee said ‘Thailand was having a lot of alerts but the tourists can rest assured that it’s not something that very serious.’

MATTA chief executive officer Phua Tai Neng was also present during the conference.

Last August, Thailand saw its worst bombing incident when a bomb was detonated inside the Erawan Shrine, located at a busy intersection in Rachaprasong, Bangkok, killing 20 people, including five Malaysians.

Malaysia was the second biggest market for Thailand since few years back. In 2015, there were 3,423,379 Malaysian tourists, an increase of 31 per cent from 2014. This year, we expect 3.5 million tourists from the country.
