Tourism in Thailand
The infectious courtesy, hospitality, and graciousness of the Thai people make them great hosts for tourists venturing into this part of Southeast Asia. The warmth of the people serves as the best backdrop for this country’s rich cultural heritage. Millions of people have visited Thailand and have returned home with wonderful stories about the Golden Temple, beautiful coastlines as found in Phuket and Pattaya, and historic locations like Ayutthaya, which has been designated by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site.
Tourism is a major industry for Thailand, generating more than $6 billion each year in revenue. This figure exceeds most of Thailand’s major exports and creates jobs for tens of thousands of Thai workers in many places around the country. In areas such as coastal Phuket, tourism represents the primary driving force for the economy.
Anyone visiting Thailand as a tourist will be pleased and perhaps somewhat surprised. It is an incredible country filled with wonderfully welcoming people, world-class accommodations, fantastic foods, and fascinating places to visit. The gentleness of the people and the culture make a visitor feel very welcome and safe. Traditional dances and costumes are alive with movement and color. Buddha serves as a constant and peaceful reminder of the country’s religious heritage. Temples, called Wat, are located throughout the country, and many of these beautiful structures attract curious visitors. A visit to Thailand is an unforgettable experience, and tourism leaves the coffers of the Thai economy a bit richer.
