Thailand is likely to meet its target of 35 million international visitors this year, according to a study by the Kasikorn Research Centre.

It expects that inbound tourism will continue to expand. According to the Ministry of Tourism and Sports, 20.41 million tourists came to Thailand during the first seven months, rising 4.5% over the same period last year. The revenue from foreigners also increased 6.1% to 1.03 trillion baht.

The tourism-friendly environment and proactive marketing plans of the government are primarily responsible for the growth, according to the research centre.
