Thailand’s Tourism Growth: A Good Sign For A 5-Star Resort In Kata Beach
Ever since some high-ranking Thai generals tried to take over the government 3 years ago through a junta which they staged while the entire world was watching, Thailand, as a whole kingdom, has gone through a lot of changes which includes the death of their former king, Bhumibol Aduyadej at the age of 88 back in 2016. At the time of his death, His Majesty King Bhumibol Aduyadej was the world’s longest reigning monarch. And due to his unfortunate death, a year-long period of mourning is still on going at present. At present times, Thailand’s tourism industry has been booming s of late. In fact, the famous province of Phuket, a known tourist destination even among non-Asian vacationists, has been enjoying a significant increase in tourist arrivals, primarily from mainland China and Russia. The province saw an 18% increase of the arrivals of tourists since the beginning of the year and this is a good news especially for a 5-star resort in Kata Beach. This means that there will be more vacationists flocking to the province’s awesome beach resorts.
According to the verified data, there’s a whopping 51% increase in the arrivals of the Russian tourists this year because of the continuing efforts of the Thai government to furthermore strengthen the Thai Bhat and the political volatility in countries in the Middle East. Another contributing factor for the surge of tourist arrivals in Thailand, specific in the beautiful province of Phuket is the mere fact that more and more accommodation options are being made available for tourists from all over the world. In fact, among these accommodation options which vacationists can choose is a fancy 5-star resort in Kata Beach which can give vacationists a vacation experience they will never forget. According to tourism experts in Thailand, hotels and resorts in Phuket have already recorded more than 75% annualized occupancy for the year and that number is still expected to rise throughout the year. This success is due to the continuing process of attracting new development projects that come with more brand-affiliated properties. Overall, experts believe that the surge in the number of tourist arrivals, primarily Russian and Chinese nationals, would greatly help the country’s economy, especially for the upcoming election in 2018.
