Thanet Petchsuwan Vice Governor for Marketing in Asia and the South Pacific Thailand Tourism Authority (TAT) said from the big picture of the recovery of Asian tourists now, only “Chinese market” Indeed, we must follow up on the results of the General Assembly of the Communist Party of China on October 14-16, on the 100th anniversary of the announcement of the 22nd Plan, 4 years, which is a breakthrough. “End” how China will continue its COVID-19 policy

“May the Chinese authorities really open up the country. TAT is confident that travel demand will flow to Thailand. Concerns have also arisen during this period over the price of round-trip air tickets to China, which has already dropped significantly. But still considered expensive. When China opens the country Airfare is expected to drop again. “
