Thailand announced plans for tourism for the current year


Although the tourist flow to Thailand has begun to recover, there are still quite a few unresolved problems. At the end of 2021, this country should accept only 1 million people, which is 82 percent less than last year. Such data are published in The Bangkok Post. Local authorities believe that it is not worth talking about a full recovery of tourism so far. The provinces are not ready to fully open up to tourism. Actually, for this reason, tourism in the kingdom will be at an all-time low. Again, the publication admits that another lockdown could be introduced, because the sanitary situation is still far from ideal.

As noted by The Bangkok Post, despite the opening to vaccinated foreign citizens of Phuket and several other islands, a drop in tourist flow by 82% is the most likely outcome. Travel companies are now not allowed to work on conditions that were relevant before the coronavirus pandemic. As of the beginning of this month, Phuket has received 15.2 thousand foreign tourists. We took into account the indicators from July 1.

We will remind, earlier the local authorities announced that they hope to receive 3 million tourists by the end of the year. However, in this way the situation will develop in the event that the sanitary situation improves rapidly and one province after another begins to open up for tourism. But so far, among the plans, only a few have been realized. According to local media reports, domestic tourism in Thailand also does not shine in terms of indicators. If you look at the pre-pandemic figures, then domestic tourists made an average of 10 million trips per month, but in the first five months of 2021, 23.6 million trips were officially registered. In 5 months, it should have turned out at least twice as many tourist trips.

Thailand expects to receive income not only from Asian market. There are also serious plans for Russian tourists. The tourist business of Thailand calls on the authorities to certify the Russian drug Sputnik V as soon as possible. Then, in September, tour operators from Russia will begin to form programs and tourists will arrive.
