This year, the Land of Smiles welcomed 1,041,293 visitors from Malaysia between the first of the year and the seventh of October. When they visit Thailand, tourists from Malaysia are now going to a greater number of the country’s provinces than they did in the past. According to Tanes Petsuwan, deputy governor of the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT), Malaysian visitors used to visit Thailand exclusively for their vacations and stay in Songkhla the entire time. However, they are now traveling to Krabi, Phatthalung, Phuket, Satun, Chiang Mai, and Chiang Rai in addition to Chiang Mai and Chiang Rai.
