Thailand’s southern islands are a tourist magnet


According to the director of the office for the islands that are run by the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT), the islands of Koh Samui, Koh Tao, and Koh Pha Ngan have had a total of 2.3 million tourists come on their shores over the course of the past ten months. This has resulted in revenue of more than forty billion Thai baht. The islands located off the coast of Surat Thani are anticipating a sixty percent spike in the number of visitors as compared to the middle of the year.

According to the statistics provided by Hat Noppharat Thara-Mu Ko Phi Phi National Park, Maya Bay, which is a major natural attraction located in Krabi, has been receiving an average of 4,100 tourists every day.

In light of the fact that the bay had been closed for environmental restoration from the months of August through September, the chief of the park referred to the statistics as a “good indicator.” The park enforces stringent guidelines for visitors, including the prohibition of swimming in the ocean and the requirement that reef-safe sunscreen is used. The number of tourists visiting the number of Thailand’s well-known resort areas has recently increased. Immigration officials in Thailand reported 934,164 foreign visitors to Phuket between May 1 and November 27 of this year. There are 914,746 tourists that are not from Thailand, however, there are 19,418 tourists who are Thai. The Phuket Walking Street Sunday Market, sometimes commonly referred to as ‘Laad Yai,’ is a popular destination for visitors to the island of Phuket. In November, the greatest demography of international visitors to Phuket was comprised of Russians. In the past month, there have been 55,097 people from Russia have visited the island province. At least 20,000 people visited Koh Larn island off the coast of Pattaya over the course of only one weekend in the previous month. The throng of tourists, both young and elderly, descended onto the island and quickly made their way to Ta Waen Beach. The islands of South Thailand’s popular tourist destinations are seeing an uptick in visitor numbers.

In addition to the food, umbrellas, and other services that were available at the beach, the tourists liked getting traditional Thai massages. Pattaya City has also constructed a lookout that looks out over the beach specifically for tourists to use when taking pictures. On November 6, Phang Nga’s tourism officials presented a gift to a woman from Slovakia who became the destination’s millionth visitor from outside of Thailand. Now, the province of Phang Nga has established a target of welcoming up to 10 million tourists in the coming year. As of the 26th of October, Thailand had already exceeded the 7 million mark in terms of the number of international tourists who visited the country.

Bangkok’s most famous horrible museum


The Siriraj Medical Museum contains a collection of dangerous artifacts and displays of every conceivable kind. If you get a kick out of seeing skeletons, deformed people, and accident victims, this is the type of place you will want to visit while at the Big Mango. Since Siriraj is regarded as one of the best and most renowned hospitals in Bangkok (the Royal family has an entire floor reserved there), it is regarded as one of the best educational institutions for medical professors seeking to advance their knowledge.

In addition to whole corpses, body parts, and bones, there are embryos and fetuses of various sizes on display. The cross-section of a human head can make your stomach turn, but the section of the museum devoted to bones is fascinating to study. This section is extremely instructive, covering a vast array of topics, from specific bone types to in-depth explanations of how the injuries occurred. Bangkok’s museum is a one-of-a-kind attraction that you will remember for the rest of your life. The museum tour only takes thirty minutes and costs forty baht. However, if you have a weak stomach or don’t do well while viewing the numerous horrible ways in which a person’s life could end, you are advised not to enter the exhibit. Despite the macabre exhibits housed in the museum, entering Siriraj Hospital is almost identical to being a witness to a significant historical event that occurred in Bangkok. Even if you skip the excellent museum housed within the renowned hospital, the building itself is well worth a visit. The museum is located within the medical center, and all visitors are admitted free of charge. The museum has the potential to educate visitors, but only if they are able to overcome their aversion to confronting examples of medical abnormalities. The 2004 Boxing Day tsunami, also known as the Tsunami, and cadavers preserved in glass jars are examples of such circumstances. Bangkok’s most infamous macabre museum is an establishment that visitors to the city might not consider visiting.

Since May, Phuket has seen over 900,000 tourists, according to Thai immigration


Between May 1 and November 27, Thai immigration officials in Phuket kept track of about 900,000 tourists. During that time, a total of 934,164 tourists visited the island province, bringing the total number of tourists to 934,164. There are 914,746 tourists who are not from Thailand, but only 19,418 tourists are from Thailand. In the meantime, the Phuket Walking Street Sunday Market, which is also called “Laad Yai,” continues to get a lot of visitors every week. Somyos Patan, vice president of the Old Phuket Town Community, says that the market is one of the most important places for tourists to see in Phuket. He also says that tourists must go to the famous market in Phuket Old Town. Phuket’s Old Town is where the market is. In November, Russians made up the largest group of tourists in Phuket.

The month before, 55,097 people from Russia went to the island province. Russian tourists are filling up chartered flights to Phuket and Pattaya. Aeroflot has said that they will increase the number of direct flights to Phuket. This comes less than two weeks after Russian airlines made a successful return to the island. The main airline in Russia announced on November 12 that there would be 14 more flights a week between Russia and Phuket. The deputy governor of the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) said a week ago that more than one million Russian tourists will visit Thailand in 2019. As of October 26, more than seven million people from outside Thailand had been there as tourists. The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) thinks that between 7 and 10 million tourists will visit the country by 2022. After the Covivirus pandemic, Phuket’s tourism business is still getting better. Last month, Indian tourists made up the second-largest group of visitors to Phuket, according to Phuket Immigration. In total, there were 26,525 of them. At 13,868, Australian tourists were the third most numerous group. There were 12,340 British tourists, making them the fourth largest group. Germany had 11,097 tourists from that country, which put it in fifth place. Thai tourism officials were completely taken aback by the recent influx of Russian tourists. Even though there is still fighting between Russia and Ukraine, the head of the Association of Thai Travel Agents says that Russian tourism has returned much faster than expected (ATTA).
