Thailand readies for influx of tourists during Christmas season


More tourists can be expected during the holiday season next month now that there are more flights to Thailand, the Immigration Bureau’s deputy chief Pol Maj-General Archayon Kraithong said on Tuesday.

He also dismissed fears of foreign arrivals sparking a new wave of infections in the country, saying more than 20,000 tourists have arrived since November 1, and as of November 8, only 15 were found infected. He added that those found infected have been isolated and are being monitored.

Most vaccinated tourists visiting Thailand hail from the United States and European countries like Germany, the UK and Russia.
