According to the chairman of TCT, Kongkrit Hiranyakit, the tourism sector in the next year should grow by 15-20%, if the political situation remains calm and the government’s actions in this area are effective. The Chairman noted that most of the increase in tourism will come from Russia, the Middle East and China.

 

Meanwhile, the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) also forecasts an increase in the number of tourists to a total of 15 million within the next year, generating revenues of about 1.05 trillion baht.

 

By the way, the top tourist destinations in the world for 2009 are ranked as follows:

 

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World_Tourism_rankings

 

1 France 74.2 million

2 United States 54.9 million

3 Spain 52.2 million

4 China 50.9 million

5 Italy 43.2 million

6 United Kingdom 28.0 million

7 Turkey 25.5 million

8 Germany 24.2 million

9 Malaysia 23.6 million

10 Mexico 21.5 million

 

Thailand had about 14.1 million in 2009.

 

Incidentally, Bangkok is actually in the top ten for most visited cities in 2009, at 10.84 million for that year.

Afghanistan and Iraq seem to quite popular with many western males. Though I don't think they go there for the mongering.

I'm not sure about the top 10 (a real bytch to find that info) but this is what I found for visitors to Thailand:

 

http://thailand-business-news.com/tourism-2/27932-thailand-tourist-arrivals-beat-forecast

The details of visitor arrival trends in January – November 2010:

 

EAST ASIA: Arrivals grew by 15.14% to 7.17 million. Arrivals from Malaysia, China, and Korea were up strongly though arrivals from Japan have slightly declined. Overall growth from the region is expected to remain strong, especially to popular Thai beach resorts.

 

EUROPE: Arrivals grew by 8.15% to 3.8 million. Countries that reported higher than 5% growth were Denmark, France, Germany, Norway, Russia, and Eastern Europe. Markets that did not do so well are UK, Sweden, the Netherlands, Italy, Ireland, Finland, and Belgium due to poor economic conditions.

 

THE AMERICAS: Arrivals grew by a fractional 0.18% to 758,902 due to the economic conditions. The main market, the US, declined by -1.40% to 549,722. Arrivals from Canada were down -0.92%. However, arrivals from Brazil returned to strong positive growth (16.76%).

 

SOUTH ASIA: Arrivals surged by a strong 22.78% to 903,663 with all markets doing well, except Pakistan which has been affected by flooding and domestic political issues. India, however, has become a primary market with arrivals up by 26.31% to 690,374, making it the region’s fastest growing market. Thailand is receiving increasing attention in the Indian market, especially among tour groups and niche-market segments; such as, wedding and honeymoon, and film-making. This market is projected to show continued growth in 2011.

 

OCEANIA: Arrivals grew by 9.42% to 719,708. Australia, the main market, was up 10.28% to 634,407 whereas New Zealand showed a smaller growth of 3.16% to 82,931.

 

MIDDLE EAST: Arrivals in January – November 2010 grew by a strong 21.73% to 534,844 with all markets showing a positive growth, especially Iran. Main markets like Israel and the UAE have continued to do well. However, arrivals from Kuwait and Saudi Arabia have slowed significantly with respective declines of -6.33% and -23.62%. Thailand has maintained a strict neutrality and maintains good relations with the Arab and Islamic world, where it enjoys a good reputation as a value-for-money destination.

1 in 549,722! Makes me seem a bit more relevant than 1 in 310,000,000.

 

I know I felt like more of a man.

 

Oddly I chose Thailand because two weeks there was cheaper than one week in Hawaii. And it seemed like more of an adventure.

 

A coincidence to the vacationers going to Afghanistan, the crime rate in the US has gone down.

Red and Yellow shorts are doing what they can to reduce tourist numbers.

 

 

=================================================

'We're here for the long haul', vow yellow shirts

 

PAD members installed 60 toilets and 60 bathrooms yesterday in a clear signal to the government that they plan to occupy the site on Ratchadmanoen Nok Avenue for some time.

 

"We won't lay siege to Government House or parliament today or tomorrow, but we're not sure if we won't do so in the future," threatened Maj Gen Chamlong Srimuang, a PAD leader.

 

The PAD yesterday repeated its three demands yesterday and vowed to continue the rally until the government agreed to comply or step down.

 

...........

Meanwhile, leaders of the red-shirt United Front for Democracy against Dictatorship (UDD) announced that their anti-government rally at Democracy Monument will at tonight.

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
      Monday 6 pm - 8pm  (then bar crawl after)
      21st March - Playpen Soi 6
      28th March - Night wish bar Soi 6
      4th April - Toy Box bar Soi 6
      11th April - Repent Soi 6
      18th April - where angels play Soi 6
