Thailand tourist visa
Visitors bearing Chinese passports can now directly head to Thailand without any need of further visa application, as the Thai government decided to extend a visa policy which was supposed to expire on 28th Feb.

Policies involving free visas or visas-on-arrival with a 50% discount for 22 nations & regions, which includes China, would be extended till late August. After discount, the cost of a visa on arrival is 1,000 THB (or $28). The tourist administration of Thailand is additionally arranging for a national tourist festival from 15th to 19th Feb, which will introduce visitors to twenty four brand new, not-to-be-missed locales in the nation.

Chinese tourists flocking to Thailand have continually surged in recent years. Big media outlets in this South East Asian country announced that around 32.58 million individuals had visited last year, an 8.91% increase over the prior year, producing tourism revenue of 1.64 trillion THB, a 12.64% increase.

Chinese tourists to Thailand increased by 1.1 million last year, in comparison with 2015, making it 8.7 million. It is anticipated that over 9 million people from China will visit Thailand this year.

Since 2016, Thailand has been touted as the most popular international destination for Chinese tourists, which surpasses other Asian nations like Japan, South Korea and the Philippines, as per Wang Xiaosong, the CEO of an online travel agency called “Lvmama”.

The Chinese have developed a better understanding of the Thai culture. This can be instanced to a few Chinese movies, like “Lost in Thailand”, that have been screened in China. Thailand's world famous islands and gorgeous landscapes also draw a lot of tourists. The nation’s friendly visa policies are another major reason for its popularity as a destination, said Wang.
