Over the course of the three-day weekend, both domestic and foreign tourists flocked to Surat’s well-known islands. The popularity of diving in Koh Tao and an occasion in Koh Samui, they claimed, were to blame for the increase in visitors to the islands. Over the holiday weekend, 57,000 tourists came to the province of Surat Thani, helping to make it a successful long weekend for the tourism industry in southern Thailand. The leader of TAT Surat Thani asserted that the excellent weather over the weekend played a significant role in increasing traffic. The addition of 32,604 Thai nationals over the holiday weekend brought the overall number of travellers to 57,243. Particularly on all three of the well-known islands, the sea has recently been lovely and worth viewing. A full moon party was hosted on Koh Phangan, a trail race was held on Koh Samui, and many people went scuba diving on Koh Tao. 10,000 people, or approximately half as many, attended the party over the prolonged five-day holiday weekend last month.

On Koh Pha Ngan, where the majority of properties sell out every month, rates were likely far higher during the Full Moon Party, despite the fact that local hotels reported an average occupancy rate of 54.39% for the holiday weekend and an average stay of three nights. The Ratchaprapa Dam, water disposal sites, and forests were all popular tourist attractions on the mainland over the previous weekend.
Compared to foreign visitors, domestic tourists are more likely to spend time exploring the province’s mainland’s beaches, wooded areas, waterfalls, and other natural beauty locations. This might also explain why there are more Thai tourists overall than visitors from other countries. 24,639 tourists visited the other islands in the province, according to information made public by the TAT’s Surat Thani office. This weekend, according to the TAT office, tourism will earn close to 456 million baht, with average foreign visitor expenditures being around 1,200 baht higher than average Thai visitor expenditures ($3,696 vs. 2,507, respectively).
