Chart, tourism : number of arrivals until september and for Q3

Tourism Authority of Thailand provides statistics of international tourist arrivals.

Here is an update of our charts, with the datas until september and Q3 (the datas are for the total of arrivals, it means including by air, by land and by sea).
For both charts, you’ll see the numbers on left scale, and the % of change on right scale.

PER MONTH

PER QUARTER

September posted a mere 0,7 % increase compare to september 06.

With the view per quarter, it’s a little bit better : Q3 recorded a growth of 2,69 % compare to Q3 last year.

This year is a good test : the tsunami is really behind us (by the way this is why on Q1 2006 we have a +35 % compare to Q1 2005, base effect) and the political crisis should not really deter the tourists.

My view : we have a plateau. The times of explosive growth for the tourist industry seem over.

Anyway : the full high-peak season has just started. It’s going to be a good test.

[UPDATE 2008
For some mysterious reasons, TAT has stopped the publication of the arrivals per month… Therefore, we can’t have the datas for 2008.]

Thailand Crisis

Coup, Economic slowdown, Terror In the South... The situation is worsening in Thailand. Bumpy road like often before.

But this time, it's different.

The key to understand the present turmoil is the inevitable... succession of King Bhumibol.
