The number of foreigners visiting Thailand in September 2022 will increase by about 130,000 from August
Thailand's Ministry of Tourism and Sports (MOTS) has released foreign arrivals statistics for September 2022.

According to data released by MOTS, the number of foreigners entering the country in July 2022 was 1,309,115.

The number of foreigners entering Thailand in August 2022 was 1,174,743, which means an increase of about 130,000 in one month. The number of new cases was about 230,000 from April to May, about 260,000 from June to July, and about 50,000 from July to August. The rate of increase from July to August was much slower than before, but the increase from August to September increased by about 130,000, indicating a significant increase again.

In Thailand, COVID-19-related regulations have been gradually relaxed since April 2022, and as of October 2022, almost all regulations have been lifted. Regulations on the use of facilities that attract foreign tourists visiting Thailand, such as entertainment facilities, have also been abolished, and now the situation is almost back to normal before the COVID-19 disaster.

According to the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT), 1,041,293 Malaysian tourists visited Thailand from 1 January to 7 October 2022, bringing in tourism revenue to Thailand of approximately 26.6 billion baht.

From January 1st to September 8th, 2022, more than 5 million foreign tourists have visited Thailand, and in terms of number of tourists by country, Malaysia ranks first and India ranks second. , 3rd place is Laos, 4th place is Cambodia, and it can be seen that there are many foreign tourists from neighboring countries of Thailand. TAT expects more tourists from these neighboring countries to come by the end of 2022.

Thailand enters its peak tourist season in November, and the number of foreign tourists is expected to soar. TAT aims to reach a total of 10 million foreign tourists by 2022. Regarding Malaysia in particular, they hope to welcome 1.8 million Malaysian tourists to Thailand by the end of 2022.

September Thai car production up 28%, 179,000 units
According to the Automotive Division of the Federation of Thai Industries (FTI), the number of automobiles produced in Thailand in September increased 28% year-on-year and 4.4% month-on-month, to a total of 179,237 units. Also, for the nine months from January to September, sales increased by 12.6% year-on-year to 1,364,037 units.

New car sales in Thailand in September increased 15.6% year-on-year and 8.7% month-on-month to 74,150 units. For the nine months from January to September, sales increased by 19.1% year-on-year to 633,687 units.

It can be seen that the demand for automobile sales in Thailand is increasing after the pandemic has ended, but on the other hand, there are reports that automobile production is not keeping up with demand due to supply chains such as semiconductor shortages.

Thai AirAsia to resume Chiang Mai-Taipei route
Low-cost airline Thai AirAsia has announced that it will resume direct flights between Chiang Mai and Taipei, Taiwan from December 15, 2022.

Due to the pandemic, Taiwan has implemented very strict immigration regulations, including home quarantine. Immigration restrictions have been relaxed to change to self-quarantine. Also, from October 13th, domestic public transportation can be used. This deregulation will make it easier for Taiwanese to travel abroad, and it is expected that demand for trips to Bangkok from Taiwanese tourists will increase significantly in the future.

In light of this situation, airlines have begun to resume and newly launch flights between Bangkok and Taiwan. From December 17, 2022, the route connecting Bangkok and Taipei, Taiwan will resume, and Thai Smile, a subsidiary of Thai Airways International, will also resume direct flights connecting Bangkok and Kaohsiung, Taiwan from December 1, 2022.

With Taiwan's relaxation of immigration restrictions, the number of tourists visiting Thailand from Taiwan is expected to increase in the future, and it is believed that Taiwan will become an important customer for the revival of the Thai tourism industry.

China Southern Airlines to resume flights to Bangkok in late October 2022
China Southern Airlines has announced that it will resume direct flights between mainland China and Bangkok at the end of October 2022.

The announcement will be very good news for many Chinese who have been frustrated by not being able to travel for the better part of three years due to the pandemic.

The past changes in the number of Chinese tourists visiting Thailand are as follows.
2016 (8.76 million people)
2017 (9.81 million people)
2018 (10.54 million people)
2019 (12 million people)

From 2016 to 2019, the number of Chinese tourists visiting Thailand increased steadily, with 12 million in 2019 accounting for a quarter of all foreigners entering Thailand.

However, the number of people has decreased sharply due to the pandemic. The number of Chinese tourists visiting Thailand in 2022 has plummeted to just 5% of the number in 2019.

The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) aims to attract an additional 12 million foreign tourists to Thailand by the end of 2022 and they put a lot of effort into it. The resumption of China Southern Airlines flights to Bangkok is likely to be better news for the Thai tourism industry.

The specific details of China Southern Airlines' Bangkok flights, which will be resumed, have not yet been announced, but we would like to introduce them on this site as soon as they are announced.
