Tourism official pushes for 1 July return of international tourists to Thailand

The chief of the Association of Thai Travel Agents has begged the government to let tourists from countries who have controlled the coronavirus pandemic flood back into Thailand. He has said that Thailand should not miss the boat.

Not surprisingly, at the top of Wichit Prakopkoson’s list were the Chinese.

In an upbeat article on Thai Rath the ATTA boss said that Thailand was ready to open the country up to tourism.

The country could get an edge versus other countries in the world that were not ready for tourism.

He said that tourism operators in the kingdom could wait no longer – now is the time to open up. He was principally referring to July 1st when international travel would be opened up again.

He thanked the government for their brilliant efforts regarding the containment of Covid-19 but stressed that businessmen and tourists from countries that have controlled the virus should be encouraged to come back.

He mentioned Chinese people, including nationals of Hong Kong and Macao, South Koreans, Taiwanese, Vietnamese and Laotians among others.

Normally Thailand would be welcoming three million tourists a month but even 100,000 would be a good start and bring in 5 billion baht, he said.

If a million came that would be a much needed 50 billion baht, said the Thai Rath article.

The news comes after the Bangkok Post on Friday reported that international tourists would be allowed to return to Thailand from 1 July.

However, when exactly foreign tourists will be able to return to Thailand is yet to be confirmed by the Thai government.
