A rise in the number of people taking holidays in Thailand has been recorded.

 An increase in the number of people taking flights to Thailand has been recorded, as the South East Asia region sees an increase in travellers overall.

New figures from the Pacific Asia Travel Association (PATA) showed that arrivals to Asia Pacific destinations grew by six per cent year-on-year to August 2011.

Travel to South East Asia saw particularly strong growth, with a 15 per cent rise in passenger numbers during the month.

It was the second consecutive month of increases, as July had also recorded an 11 per cent rise in visitors.

Of all the countries in the region, Thailand reported the highest increase in arrivals, with numbers up by 35 per cent over the 12 month period.

Many people on flights to Thailand could be influenced by the news that the country was ranked as the fourth best in the world in the recent Conde Nast Traveller Readers Travel Awards.
