Thailand Records 4.2 Million Foreign Investors in Jan-Feb, Expecting 30 Million by Year’s End

Thailand recorded a total of 4.2 million foreign visitors in the first two months of this year and generated more than 142 billion baht of revenue, according to the data released by the Tourism Minister Pipat Ratchakitprakan at a business seminar on Thursday.

The ministry expects to welcome 25 million and 30 million foreign visitors this year as the kingdom’s key driving force rebounds, following the border reopening, especially China. Despite tourist arrivals recording at the high-end of this forecast, it is lower than the record of nearly 40 million in pre-pandemic level of 2019, but undeniably a positive trend to the country that relied heavily on the tourism sector.
