The Tourism Council of Thailand (TCT) has set a lofty goal for local tourists to take 200 million domestic trips this year, while the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) is mulling the prospect of postponing Songkran to July.
The greater challenge for Thai tourism is to boost the number of domestic trips to maintain jobs for workers in the industry until the coronavirus crisis passes, said TCT president Chairat Trirattanajarasporn.
The TAT has set a target of 172 million domestic trips this year, generating 1.13 trillion baht in revenue.
Mr Chairat acknowledged that with the foreign market down sharply, the TAT’s worst-case scenario of losing 10 million inbound guests and 1.5 trillion baht in revenue is likely.
