Chinese surge in tourist arrivals boosts full-year target in Thailand

Brief: A surge in the number of Chinese tourists in the first four months of 2015 has prompted the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) to raise its full-year forecast for Chinese arrivals from 5.4 to 6 million.
The Tourism and Sports Ministry of Thailand reported 2.69 million arrivals from China in the first four months, generating 122 billion baht for the country, a surge of 110pc year-on-year.
 
The average spending per person per day among Chinese tourists during the first four months was 6,346 baht.
 
Tourism and Sports Minister Kobkarn Wattanavrangkul said that was far higher than the first-quarter average of 4,950 baht for all foreign tourists visiting Thailand.
 
Mrs Kobkarn said the figures showed a potential increase in high-quality holidaymakers from China.
 
Thailand is among the top destinations for Chinese travellers, many of whom head to Chiang Mai, the main shooting location for the 2012 hit movie Lost in Thailand.
 
Mrs Kobkarn said local traders in the North changed their attitude towards Chinese travellers when the latter proved to be big spenders.
