The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) has published fresh statistics on the tourist flow to the Kingdom for March and the first 10 days of April. According to the results of March, Russia has maintained a strong position in terms of tourist flow to Thailand. At the beginning of April, Russia took the third place of the top entry markets for Thailand, and China already took the first one.
The Moscow office of the Tourism Authority of Thailand reported: in March, Thailand was visited by 178 925 tourists from Russia. This is less than in February, when 184 858 tourists from Russia arrived in Thailand and in January, when 202 642 Russians visited Thailand.
