BANGKOK, 13th October 2018 (NNT) – The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) has reported that Ctrip.com, China’s largest and most influential online travel agent, has ranked Thailand the number one global destination among Chinese tourists during this year’s National Day vacation, or the Chinese Golden Week 2018. 

Thailand comes out on top of Japan, Hong Kong SAR, Vietnam, Singapore, Taiwan, and Korea, among more than 1,000 destinations in nearly 100 countries. Favorite Thai destinations among Chinese tourists include Bangkok, Pattaya, Phuket, and Chiang Mai. 

Mr. Yuthasak Supasorn, TAT Governor, said China is Thailand’s largest tourist market, and this latest Ctrip’s study shows that the kingdom continues to win the hearts of Chinese tourists with a wide range of attractions, ranging from local experiences, abundant natural beauty and a remarkable variety of activities, including soft adventure, health and wellness, weddings and honeymoons, and sports tourism. 

This year, TAT is maintaining its target of 10.5-11 million arrivals from China, up from last year’s 9.8 million. Already this year, from January to August, Thailand has welcomed 7.7 million Chinese tourists, generating 423 billion baht.

Overheard something at an airport gate yesterday from some apparently overseas Chinese heading to Shenzen at next gate, they were speaking English with their kids: "Mom you said Thailand is a bad country why is it a bad country?". I was interested in the answer but it never came. The writing seems to be on the wall though.

Oh seriously?

For one family that says that there are 100 who don´t.

The Chinese I know love this place so much.

In the next 5 years multiply the number of Chinese 3 to 5 fold from current numbers.

You will see, this is just the beginning...

Best get use to it.

They're taken over worldwide. 

 

Historic cycles.

Well, when the stream of international manufacturers and other firms continue to leave (its starting already), we will not be seeing so many of them maybe. China is tough but not unstoppable. Once western countries untangle and unplug from China over the next 15-20 years, they will be far less successful.

I hope Cambodia will take over from Thailand as being number 1 in China. 

 

....or Laos.

They're already there in numbers, as well as substantial investments - similar to Cambodia.

Thailand is the cheap China that has a bustling tourist market, so what

is not to like by the Chinese?  I think that with northern China having

pretty cold Winters, Thailands tropical weather Is pretty inviting.

Thailands massive budget hotel industry is probably the cheapest and best deal  in the world.

Add to that mostly good all year round climate except mid March to mid May and youve got a booming cheap mass market tourism industry.

I dont hold out much hope or future for Thailands coastal environment not even CM.

Thailand is the cheap country next door to China that can be driven to, railed

to, or flown to, so why would China have a problem with wanting to come

visit Thailand? Especially when parts of China have cold Winters as well.

They're everywhere globally.....!

Italy, France, Spain etc have literally been overrun by them....Queues for attractions are endless..Venice wants them banned....France introduced limits to the Eifel Tower and other places...the nightmare is growing!

They built 70 casinos owned by the Chinese in Sihanoukville , Chinese now control the city thanks to corrupted officials  and western backpackers are fleeing to Vietnam instead.   

 

Cambodia is totally out of control,  as long as foreigners invest money in the country they can get away with almost anything,

Phuket numbers in Golden Week looked well down on the previous couple of years, however this could be due to the diminishing number of tourists. Ctrip, as far as I know and I could be wrong, don't get involved in zero baht tourism, concentrating more on the independent traveller, and it's they who've come out with these figures.

Is it really? I order loads of stuff from China, because even when counting in the postage it's still cheaper than here. Yes I know, I'm contributing to the problem but got no real choice as most of the DIY stuff here is the lowest quality China produces in it's sweatshops.
