Thailand Reaches Its Tourism Goal With The 34th Millionth Visitor

For business and leisure travellers to Bangkok, one of the best decisions they can make is to book at a Bangkok hotel near embassy because of its convenient location. Aside its proximity to embassies, the Bangkok hotel is conveniently located in the city centre and near a multitude of attractions. Fast and easy journeys are also allowed through BTS  Sky train Phloen Chit Station.

Tourists from China and neighbouring countries in Southeast Asia are the typical visitors of Bangkok as well as the other islands in Thailand. However, a new record number of Americans have visited the Land of Smiles in 2017. One million American visitors have been recorded on the day that Thailand welcomed its 34th million visitor for the year. This makes sense because Americans have positive feelings about their stay in Thailand.

The lucky one millionth American visitor is Nathaniel Alexander Way, a pharmaceutical scientist from Santa Barbara, California. According to the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) Nathaniel and his bride decided on Bangkok as the location for their honeymoon. However, there were no reports whether Nathaniel’s bride was the 999,999th or 1,000,001stAmerican visitor to the country.

According to TanesPetsuwan, Deputy Marketing Governor of TAT, it was the first time that Thailand welcomed the first ever one millionth American visitor for the year 2017. This is also a step forward for the Thai tourism industry in its goal to expand the US market by offering unlimited Thai local experiences.

TAT has been promoting Thailand in the United States as an exotic and luxury destination for couples on their honeymoon and travellers who have big budgets. Thailand is considered as an inexpensive destination in Southeast Asia. TAT also aims to encourage Europeans to consider Thailand as their far-flung travel destination. With the arrival of the 34th millionth visitor, TAT has exceeded its goal for the year.

Tourists have spent approximately US$50 billion in Thailand this year. Most tourist-oriented industries like Bangkok hotel near embassy are among the reasons behind the successful tourism year. Hotels offer numerous benefits for direct bookings and secret benefits through the hotel website. There are special promotions and packages and great savings for families.
