Thailand's tourism shrinks by 2%-3% in first half of 2015

The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) has admitted that domestic tourism shrank by 2-3 percent in the first half of this year due to lower public purchasing power caused by tourists’ careful spending.

Speaking on the slowdown of domestic tourism, Anupharp Thirarath, Deputy TAT Governor for Domestic Marketing said the TAT will join hands with hotel operators, tourism agencies, low-cost airlines and other business allies to hold campaigns to boost the purchasing power of domestic tourists in Q4.
