Thailand sees record high international tourist arrivals in 2016

BANGKOK Thai international tourist arrivals in 2016 are expected to hit a record high of 32 million compared with an estimated 29.88 million last year, the tourism and sports minister said on Wednesday."Actually, 32 million is just a calculation. We do not put that as a target because we are now emphasizing only on the revenue," Kobkarn Wattanavrangkul told Reuters.
