Key insights from PATAmPOWER

China continued to dominate Thailand’s inbound market in 4Q2017


 
With significant year-on-year arrivals growth of 67.2 percent during the final quarter of 2017, China remained the number one source market for international visitor arrivals into Thailand, occupying well above one-quarter of total traffic. Other top suppliers, including India (+23.6%), Korea (ROK) (+21.6%), the Russian Federation (+21.0%), Lao PDR (+15.9%) and Japan (+11.1%), all produced double-digit increases while Malaysia defied the trend losing its base share by -7.6 percent. Overall, Thailand ended the quarter with 19.5 percent growth.
