Pattaya is one of the tourist destinations in Thailand that leisure travellers prefer because of relaxed and family-friendly beaches. Pattaya is offers more than just a place that has gained a reputation for nightlife and entertainment; there are quiet attractions in the city and lots of water adventures you can experience during the stay. There is a hotel in south Pattaya that caters to business travellers who want to unwind after a day full of meetings and conferences.
The Chinese prefer to travel to tourist destinations in Asia like Hong Kong, Macau and Thailand. Thailand is a cheaper option for outbound Chinese tourists because the prices of products and services are more affordable without compromising quality. There are also direct flights from China to Thailand with relatively low airfares.
However, the 2017 list of Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) includes efforts to promote luxury, boutique and other high-end services and activities for the Chinese visitors in response to their increasing interest on spas, shopping centres, golf courses and luxury hotelresorts.
The TAT list also shows the most effective means of engaging with Chinese visitors and how to promote the more luxurious options. While Thailand is certainly one of the favourite destinations of Chinese tourists, other countries in Southeast Asia are making the effort to attract Chinese visitors and enjoy a different adventure.
One example is Indonesia where the government has recently announced its plans to attract the attention of 10 million Chinese tourists by 2019. The number of tourists travelling to Indonesia has certainly increased in number but the country is struggling to reach its goal. Aside from Indonesia, similar efforts are also being made by tourism agencies in the Philippines and Vietnam to encourage the growth of Chinese tourism in their countries. Different marketing campaigns are made including engaging with the Chinese travellers through Chinese social media.
If your reasons for visiting Thailand are dining, nightlife and entertainment, your best option is to stay at a hotel in south Pattaya for easy access to your interests. There is a wide range of rooms to choose from that are suitable for both business and leisure travellers who want a unique adventure.
