Due to the easing of covid border restrictions globally, Thailand has seen a boost in their tourism sector in 2022. This has enable Thailand's gross domestic product to grow to a year-on-year 4.5% expansion for the third quarter but also gave a big boost to personal consumption.


The positive GDP growth signals the upward momentum of the Thai tourism industry that accounts for around 18% of the country's GDP. Thailand's world-famous tourism sector began emerging from its coronavirus dormancy in July, when the government began reopening the country to fully vaccinated visitors.


According to the Tourism Authority of Thailand, the country has welcomed 7.6 million foreign tourists so far in 2022. That is well above the 427,000 who managed to sneak in the previous year. The TAT expects up to 10 million foreign tourists for all of 2022 and 18 million next year. These numbers pale in comparison to the 39 million international arrivals for 2019.


Similar to pre Covid days, the tourism sector in the third quarter provided Thailand's economy with a knock-on effect, giving a significant boost to private consumption. That metric expanded 9% in the third quarter, up from 7.1% for the previous three months.

Local media said Thai officials were predicting that for all of 2022, the number of Russian tourists would reach 1 million.


THAILAND reached its target of welcoming 10 million foreign visitors this year, signalling a better-than-expected recovery of its vital tourism sector that was nearly decimated by the Covid-19 pandemic.


Tourism is a key growth driver and accounts for 12 per cent of Thailand’s economy, which is South-east Asia’s second-largest but has lagged regional peers. Consumer confidence rose for the sixth straight month in November to the highest level since March last year, supported mainly by higher tourism numbers.


The momentum is expected to continue in 2023, with a target of 20 million overseas arrivals and 1.5 trillion baht in foreign tourist receipts. That would put Thailand halfway to the number of foreign tourists seen in 2019, just before the pandemic, and 80 per cent of the revenue generated by foreign visitors back then.


Thailand expects to earn 2.38 trillion baht ($64.50 billion) in tourism revenue in 2023, a government official said on Monday. The government wants tourism next year to reach 80% of its 2019, pre-pandemic level, as the key growth sector is starting to see a recovery as the pandemic eases. Foreign tourists are expected to bring in between 970 billion baht to 1.5 trillion baht next year,

Thailand’s consumer spending over the period could rise 13.6% to 45 billion baht ($1.36 billion), a university survey showed on Thursday, as the economy recovers and China’s border reopening bolsters tourism.


The estimated spending compares with 39.6 billion baht last year. Studies has suggested that this year's projected 13.6% spending growth this year would be the highest in 15 years.


Lunar New Year celebrations normally signal a jump in spending by many Thais and visitors from China and other parts of Asia.

The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) is also planning to implement more travel promotions and increase airline seat capacity, in order to attract more tourists to Thailand.


TAT said that it will revise its 2023 tourism revenue target following the allocation of a budget by the government for tourism promotional campaigns on Tuesday. The cabinet approved a total of 3.9 billion baht for promotional campaigns, of which 1.93 billion baht will be used for marketing to help the Thai tourism sector.
