Thailand confident tourist arrivals will hit 2014 target

 The Tourism Council of Thailand (TCT) is confident the country's tourism industry will bounce back in the second half of 2014 and that it would reach the targeted 26.2 million visitors by the end of the year.
Thanate Vorasaran, TCT Tourism Development Division vice president, told journalists today that tourism entrepreneurs in Thailand were confident that more tourists would visit Thailand in the second half of 2014, despite the industry being negatively affected by the political crisis in the first half of the year.
Mr Thanate said tourists will start returning to Thailand in August, especially those from South Korea, Japan and China, as a result of  the visa fee exemption for tourists from China and Taiwan as part of the celebration of the 40th anniversary of diplomatic relations between the Thailand and China.
According to Mr Thanet, the TCT believed the number of tourist arrivals would hit the target of 26.8 million and generate about Bt1.9 trillion by the end of 2014.
The TCT, meanwhile, advised the National Council for Peace and Order, now administering the country, to work to ensure tourist safety and security as well as solving 'the mafia problem' in major tourist destinations to uplift the tourism industry and to boost the long-term confidence of international visitors.
