Thailand hopes to welcome 100,000 Saudi visitors by 2023

BANGKOK, 24 May 2022, (TON): Tourism officials said “Thailand is hoping to welcome 100,000 annual Saudi visitors by 2023, as the country prepares to attract families, medical tourists and millennials from the Kingdom.”

Thai tourism officials last week held the “Amazing Thailand Roadshow to Saudi Arabia,” marking the Southeast Asian nation’s first tourism promotion campaign since the two kingdoms restored diplomatic ties in late January.

Bilateral relations, which had stalled in the 1980s, were renewed following Thai Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha’s visit to Riyadh, which was the first senior leadership meeting between the two countries in over three decades.

The two governments have since signed cooperation agreements to promote trade, investment and labor recruitment, with officials now set to enhance cooperation in the tourism industry.
