The Phuket Express reported that the total number of tourists from other nations was 75,248. India, with 8,939 visitors, Australia, with 5,275 visitors, the United Kingdom, with 4,511 visitors, and Germany, with 4,152 visitors, followed China and Japan as the biggest source countries for tourists visiting Phuket.

According to the Thailand Tourism Association, Malaysians comprised Thailand’s largest group of tourists in 2016. This declaration was made in September. India, Laos, and Cambodia received the second, third, and fourth most tourists after Thailand. Russians comprise the largest group of tourists who visited Phuket in November. During the first 10 days of November, Phuket was visited by 18,370 Russian tourists.

However, it appears that the number of Russian tourists visiting some regions of the kingdom is increasing. Since the beginning of this month, direct flights between Moscow and Phuket International Airport have resumed. Also in November, it was predicted that the number of Russian visitors visiting the island of Koh Samui would increase, particularly in the month of December. Prior to the Covidien-19 outbreak and the Russian invasion of Ukraine, Koh Samui’s reliance on tourists from Russia was a key contributor to the island’s economy. It is anticipated that the return of Russian tourists to Koh Samui and the nearby islands of Koh Pha Ngan and Koh Tao would significantly increase the tourism business on those islands. Residents of Russia and other European countries with notoriously frigid winters are planning to move to Thailand because of the country’s warm and tropical environment. As of October 26th, the number of international tourists visiting Thailand had already surpassed 7 million. The country is therefore on pace to fulfill the Tourism Authority of Thailand’s (TAT) target range of 7 to 10 million visitors for 2022.
