There are villas in Hua Hin that can be considered as the perfect beachfront getaway for families, for a group of students and for couples on their honeymoon.

According to Thailand’s Ministry of Tourism and Sports, there were more than 12 million tourist arrivals for the first four months of 2017. These visitors have spent about 620 billion baht, an increase of 4.71% compared to the same period last year. The thriving domestic tourism also generated 220 billion baht. The kingdom experienced a growth of 17% from India if compared to 2016.

TAT Governor YuthasakSupasorn said that the reason why Thailand attracts so many visitors is the various experiences it offers. No matter how many times you visit Thailand; there will always be something new and unique to look forward to.

During the first few months of 2017, tourist arrivals increased because they wanted to experience the lovely weather and the amazing festivals like Songkran or the Thai New Year celebrations. People want to enjoy the culture of a place that is why they usually schedule their trip when there are celebrations. Even the locals take advantage of the holidays to relax at beachfront getaways. TAT is very delighted that tourism is doing so well in 2017 and they will continue to offer a warm Thai welcome to all the visitors who will be arriving in the coming months.

Compared to 2016, this year witnessed a growth of 17% from India because of visa policies and extra international flight connectivity. There is also phenomenal growth in the tourist arrivals from India particularly those that are seeking for sun, shopping, scenery, leisure, adventure, spas or sports. In Thailand, there is always something for everyone.
