The opening of the 28th overseas Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) office in Toronto is set to spur visits from Canadians, who are some of the top spenders among international tourists.

The TAT held the official opening of the office, its third in the Americas, last Monday, adding to the two existing offices in New York and Los Angeles.

 

The new office is aimed at increasing Canadian visitors from 238,000 last year to 500,000 within the next few years.
 

In 2017, Thailand welcomed more than a million visitors from the US for the first time. The TAT is confident that the number of visitors from the Americas will continue to rise, said governor Yuthasak Supasorn.

 

Canadian tourists stay 18 days on average in Thailand and spend 80,000 baht per person per trip. Canadians generated 80 billion baht in tourism income last year, which is expected to increase by 8-10% this year.

 

Mr Yuthasak said the TAT will target three tourist groups from Canada: free independent travellers, LGBT and millennials. Societal acceptance in Thailand will be a selling point for potential tourists.

 

The agency will also promote Thailand as a film shooting location.

Now, if they pushed for a direct flight from either Montreal,Toronto or Vancouver to Bangkok, it would be the perfect enticement
