BANGKOK (NNT) – At Suvarnabhumi Airport in Samut Prakan province, the Tourism and Sports Minister, Pipat Ratchakitprakan, welcomed the 39th million tourist for 2019. The person is Anna Pavlovskaya, a 44-year-old Russian who has visited Thailand twice. Mrs. Pavlovskaya said she plans to take a vacation with her family in Phuket province. She was rewarded with the “Luckiest Visitor” shirt, a certificate, a five-night voucher at eligible four to five-star hotels in Thailand and two round-trip tickets for flights with Thai Airways International (THAI).

The Tourism and Sports Minister said his ministry and the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) look forward to welcoming more tourists. Prime Minister and Defense Minister, Gen. Prayut Chan-o-cha, instructed all sectors to be good hosts to foreign visitors and create a positive impression, so that they will return to Thailand again.

The Tourism and Sports Minister said the total number of international tourists is likely to hit 39.8 million by the end of this year because Thailand welcomes 140,000 visitors per day.
