TAT Governor Yuthasak Supasorn said that the total number of travellers will be close those during September 4 to 7.
TAT expects the travellers during the long holidays to generate over Bt12.6 billion into the system while room occupancy would average 37 per cent.
He added that news on Covid-19 cases in recent times, could influence travellers' plan to visit during the holidays.
Yuthasak said that these long holidays would not be that busy, as several private companies have not followed government agencies in granting the extra holidays.
Besides, there will be another long holiday in December, so some people may decide to travel at that time instead of during the long weekend in November.
The governor said that most people tended to visit famous provinces, such as Chonburi, Kanchanaburi, Nakhon Ratchasima, Rayong, Prachuap Khiri Khan, Khon Kaen, Chiang Mai or Ayutthaya.
He added that the cool weather at this time of the year would be a factor in motivating many people to visit the northern and southern regions.
