This 4-day long weekend provides an opportunity for Thais to visit tourist attractions, with destinations across the country attracting large crowds of visitors.
The site of the Doi Tung Development Project, one of the most famous attractions in the northern province of Chiang Rai, sees visitors come back to admire several species of plants and flowers. The cooler air that reaches as low as 18°C in the morning gives a refreshing change. Most visitors come here in large groups. A family from Surat Thani said they were impressed by the view, the beauty of the site and the weather.
In the eastern region, the resort city of Pattaya has seen an increase in hotel bookings. There are Thai and international guests. Many hotels have set up special offers for families wishing to go on vacation during the school holidays.
The majority of international tourists in Pattaya at the moment are from Asia, mainly India. Several hoteliers have made adjustments to their room and food offerings to meet the needs of these guests, who primarily stay in the central and southern areas of Pattaya. The city expects to see more European tourists in November.
In Phuket, stores selling tie-dye clothing in the Old Town are packed with customers, leading to increased sales revenue. Customers, mostly from India and the Middle East, come to buy these clothes to wear to the beach. (NNT)
