Advert Travel Gazette

TRAVEL GAZETTE – Thailand may have made its name as the ultimate backpacker destination but Thailand hopes to attract a more well-heeled kind of traveler in the future, local media reports.

“Our goal is to focus on quality and how to make tourists stay longer and spend more money,” Minister for Tourism and Sports Kobkarn Wattanavrangkul said, adding officials would target women, luxury holiday makers and sports tourism.

More than 29.6 million foreign visitors went to Thailand last year.
