Thailand should earn up to 733 billion baht from tourism-related revenues in the first quarter of this year, an 8 per cent year-on-year increase, 490 billion baht of which would be from foreign tourists and the rest from Thai tourists.

The uptrend was due to the recovering global economy and growing aviation services of international airlines and charter flights during this year’s Chinese New Year Festival and marketing campaigns launched by TAT.
