Thailand is experiencing massive influx of foreign tourists

Published on : Thursday, January 31, 2019

Thailand is experiencing a massive influx of foreign tourists, and the officials have expressed their concerns over the nation’s ability to manage this huge flow of visitors – as poor infrastructure, costly security measures, and other priorities of national development jeopardize the sustainability of the tourism sector.

 

Kristian Rouz, one of Asia’s most popular tourist destinations, Thailand, is witnessing an ever-increasing influx of visitors for the past year, and authorities are expecting more to come this year as well. The kingdom’s growing hospitality sector is driven by low prices, loose regulations, cultural appeal, as well as a mix of tropical beaches and rowdy urban nightlife.

 

The Thai government said that the number of foreign tourists in the country is expected to hit a new record of 41.1 m people this year, surpassing last year’s record of 38.3 m.

 

The 41 million is a projection from the current trend”, Tourism Minister Weerasak Kowsurat said. “If we actually really reach that level, I’ll have a headache”.
