On February 4, 2022, the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) announced that Thailand won numerous Chinese awards, including "the most popular travel destination" and "the most recommended travel destination" from both China's tourism industry sector and major travel media.

The awards given to Thailand by China are the "Most Popular Destinations" award from online travel agency (OTA) Thong Cheng, the "Recommended Destinations of the Year" award from City Travel Magazine, and the "Most Anticipated Destination – Short Haul" at the Travel Weekly China Award, "2021 Most Popular Overseas Travel Destinations" from WITrip Magazine.

In China, TAT offices in Beijing, Chengdu, Guangzhou, Kunming and Shanghai are actively promoting Chinese to travel to Thailand through ongoing cooperation with China's private tourism sector. This includes co-promotional activities with OTA and publicity on the progress of Thailand's resumption of international tourism.

It has recently been reported that officials will discuss the travel bubble between Thailand and China during the current Winter Olympics in Beijing. The Thai tourism industry has been hit hard by the sharp decline in Chinese tourists. Now that Thailand has been found to be a popular destination for Chinese tourists, deregulation and the promotion of travel bubbles are expected as soon as possible.
