Hope that affluent tourists may start to return to Thailand has been fuelled by the entrance of a few mega billionaires to Koh Samui and other tourist islands. Numerous costly luxury ships have approached the Samui shoreline, suggesting that the Covid-19 limitations may have now been partially eased. He owns more property in Moscow than nearly anyone else and is a staggeringly wealthy real estate entrepreneur. Most of his property is located in New Moscow, an area of Moscow that has seen rapid growth over the past ten years. After sailing his massive, 3.9 billion baht ship from Singapore to Koh Samui, he is currently on vacation. On July 1, the superyacht departed Singapore with 12 passengers and 6 staff members. Islanders who had noticed the enormous ship arriving were curious when Svetakov sailed the Cloudbreak superyacht across the islands of Koh Samui, Koh Pha Ngan, and Koh Tao. Millionaire Russian Alexander Alexandrovich Svetakov’s superyacht Cloudbreak was spotted heading into Koh Samui. This year, the 881st richest person in the world is a 54-year-old Russian man who serves as CEO of the Absolut Group. Government leaders were urged to show enthusiasm for luring in more affluent visitors to boost tourism and the sizable economy that high-profile wealthy visitors drive. According to reports, a second unidentified British billionaire investor went on vacation onboard his superyacht and cruised the seas near Koh Samui. A team of officials from immigration, customs, port security control, communicable disease control, and the Thai Maritime Enforcement Command Centre boarded the ship to ensure that all passengers complied with Covid regulations. The governor of Surat Thani, the city that is home to the well-known tourist islands, claimed that vacations like these taken by billionaires demonstrate the city’s potential for upscale luxury travel. Officials from the government and the tourism industry hope that this will encourage wealthier tourists to visit these tropical locations.
