International arrivals grow as Thailand welcomes the world

As Thailand becomes more easily accessible to the world, SiteMinder’s data reflects the changes taking place in hotel bookings locally.

  • In May, 57% of planned arrivals to Thai hotels are currently from international guests, extending to over 75% by June, and the volume of bookings is also extending.
  • Since the recent decision to lift the pre-travel testing requirement for international arrivals from April 1, bookings have increased to 80% of this same time in 2019, and are up from 68% at the start of April.
  • In Phuket, bookings went from 73% of pre-pandemic levels to 82% during April.
  • In Koh Samui, hotel bookings have increased from 74% to 99%.
  • For Bangkok businesses, bookings have steadily rose from 57% to 72% through the month.
  • The biggest source market is currently tourists from the UK, followed by Germany, the US and France.
