    Number of tourists visiting Phuket still high – TAT Phuket

    Just by typing: "phuket tourism statistics 2017" into Google search, I got the following info: "PEBA members number 500 in Patong, with about 200 businesses in the Bangla Road entertainment area. ... In 2017 the number of tourists visiting Thailandexceeded 35 million. Thanasak expects daily tourist spending to increase to 5,200 baht per person in 2017, up from 5,100 baht in 2016. Tourism in Thailand - Wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tourism_in_Thailand" However, according to Kanokkittika Kritwuttikorn, the director of Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) Phuket Office: “Ratio of Thai and foreign tourists is 15:85. Total visitors are 1,034,908 in November. An average spend for each visitor per day day is 8,212 baht which generated 40,391.47 million baht in November.” Either someone is lying, or the average spend per visitor is up a whopping 58% year-on-year!
