Record-Breaking 38m Tourists Visited Thailand In 2018

According to the Tourism Ministry, Thailand welcomed a whopping 38.27 million tourists in 2018, a 7.5% increase on 2017.

Other numbers tossed around in Monday’s statement included 41.1 million tourists are estimated to visit in 2019 and spend 2.21 trillion baht with the Chinese market making up around a quarter of all expected visitors.

There was no breakdown of visitors by country, only a million of this and a percentage of that.

Just how accurate these numbers are is always questioned with many suggesting they are fluffed in some face-saving exercise.
