Over 15 million people are expected to visit Thailand in 2010, according to the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT).
TAT governor Surapol Sawetseranee believes that the number of visitors will total 1.3 million in December, bringing the total for the year up to 15.7 million.
In particular, the governor believes there has been a rise in travellers taking flights to the region as the country offers new holiday experiences and good tourist services.
Predictions for 2011 forecast that 15.5 million people are expected to travel to Thailand, with a rise in those visiting from China and Scandinavia.
Suvarnabhumi Airport is Thailand’s main aviation hub and is 25 kilometres east of Bangkok.
