The tax collecting agency requires all operators earning at least 1.8 million bhat to register for the value added tax system.
The Tourism and Sports Ministry will also pick on which destinations these have come. Now the government of Thailand is pushing the effort to stimulate rural tourism economies with the wide the spread expansion of travel and tourism industry with the development of Thailand’s general revenue and economy.

With this new scheme it can value around 4 million international and national tourists.
