Yes I’ve been in and out three times already since April and I’m not a tourist so it should be 3 million 999997 

If you are not here on a tourist visa probably not, so no.

If the numbers in the article is true it only adds up to 2 million for the top 5 countries, so the other 2.5 million came from 

many many other countries?  I would believe TAT if they actually showed the countries and numbers 

that did add up to the 4.5 million.  The fantasy team for sure. Tis is Thailand.

That would be 4,015,504, who actually stepped onto Thai soil.

Of those there will be a number of people who are in Transit and on a single night stopover, Fi-Fo,s who are resuming their normal activity, and returning Expats 

Vacationers ? Maybe half the total.

So, nearly a quarter of Thailand's tourism figures appear to be migrant workers - shows the real figures for 'actual' tourism' are REALLY REALLY bad !

Yes, I very much doubt that 1 out of 33 Laotians (218,000 vs. 7.27 million) travelled to Thailand this year for pleasure. I've been told that Laotians are struggling, due to low wages, their currency's devaluation, not to mention the general inflation.

4 million entries... a mix of tourists, expats, business people and connecting travelers?

Kind of impressive and more than I would have thought, no matter who or what the reason coming/going.

If they are on retirement visas /or working, then none as they wouldnt be tourists.

Do you really think authorities make the effort to deduct those from the total number of arrivals?

Earlier this year the forecast was 15 million tourists for 2022, then 12 million, now 6 or 7 million.

Thailand and several ASEAN neighbours are now paying the price for the ever-changing requirements and endless hoops to jump through, while many Euro countries are almost back to pre-pandemic levels.

Takes a long time to get a customer but just one false move to lose him.

4 million by August would be pathetic by normal standards, pre pandemic being 3 million plus a month, but you have to remember that an arrival is counted as one every time, even if that person has been in and out four times this year, so its probably way lower in numbers of actual new people. Even that setting the records straight, does show a glimpse of sunlight on the horizon, given it was zero for a very long time. For Thai people who have lost so much these past years, I genuinely hope numbers and dollars to come back to them, and that they remember who did what for them in their hour of need while their government did little.

don't hold your breath on that one i think they have already forgotten ..

Not 80%, but pretty much the same here in Phuket. 99k Indians vs next group down 41k Aussies arrivals reports by the island immigration.
