For 2014 the Tourism Authority plan is ‘Higher revenue through Thainess’, which will mean a greater emphasis on the charm of Thailand. The target for this year is to attract 28 million, a 7% increase, and to increase revenue to US$39.9 billion.

In line with these plans, they will continue to promote the niche market products such as honeymoons, golf, health and wellness, and green tourism in the international markets.
