33 million foreign tourists predicted in 2016

As many as 33.83 million foreign tourists could visit Thailand in 2016, up 13.22% on the 29.8 million in 2015, according to the Tourism Council of Thailand (TCT).

TCT president Ittirit Kinglek said the council also projected tourism-generated income this year could reach 1.75 trillion baht, up 20.95% on last year's 1.447 trillion baht.

A total of 8.81 million international arrivals were expected in the first quarter, up 12.23% year-on-year, and 7.82 million in the second quarter, or growth of 11.56%, based on the assumption there are no unusual events.

Mr Ittirit said the confidence index in the tourism industry in the first quarter stood at 95 points, which was slightly lower than normal.
