Thailand keen to lure travelers from India


INDIA (eTN) – India has become the fifth highest travel market for Thailand, up from the earlier sixth position.

In 2015, Indian travelers, numbering 1.06 million, contributed 47,827 million bhat to the Thai economy.

The target for 2016 is an eight percent increase in arrivals from India. Thailand is also keen to promote corporate, incentive, movie-shooting, and honeymoon traffic.

Budget travelers are being replaced by luxury travelers, who are exploring new and plush places.
