The TAT on Friday released a projection stating Songkran, which marks the traditional Thai New Year, will see an 18 percent growth in tourism income.

 

The tourism authority said both Thai and foreign tourists are expected to spend nearly 20 billion baht between April 12 to April 16 this year, with the amount of Thai tourists expected to rise by about 3 million people – a 12 percent increase from last year.
