Thailand welcomed 24,081,613 foreign tourists between Jan. 1 and Nov. 25, including 100,059 arrivals recorded in November alone, the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) has announced.

Malaysians contributed the most to the total number of foreign arrivals with 3.66 million, followed by Chinese with 3.03 million, South Koreans with 1.43 million, Indians with 1.4 million and Russians with 1.24 million.

TAT Governor Thapanee Kiatphaibool credited the successful revival of the tourism industry to the government’s economic and tourism stimulus campaigns, expressing appreciation to all Thais for being such great hosts to overseas guests.

Thapanee said TAT would continue to promote Thailand’s image and ensure the safety of tourists to further attract foreign visitors.

The number of foreign arrivals to Vietnam so far this year has topped 11.2 million, far higher than the full-year target of eight million, according to the Vietnam National Administration of Tourism.

Vietnam has now set its sights on a figure of 13 million for the year.
