Over 850k Malaysians visited Thailand this year
Malaysians are returning to Thailand this year in 2022. After two years of lock down, Malaysians returns to Thailand via flight and border. From what we understand, there are over 850k Malaysians visited Thailand this year.
The exact number is 847,323 as per 16th September as we were informed by Tourism Authority of Thailand Malaysia. In July 2022, there were only 425k and within two months, the numbers hit 850k.
There are a few reasons why Malaysians are visiting Thailand. Malaysian Ringgit performed better than Thai Baht making it an ideal place for holiday.
Revenge travel is another reason as many Malaysians want to travel near as there was two years of lockdown.
Lastly, Thailand offers more in terms of value and services than our local destinations. In terms of accommodation, Thailand offers better quality stay with affordable pricing.
Most border towns are packed with Malaysians and cities like Hatyai is getting a good crowd from Malaysia.
This is why there are over 850k Malaysians visited Thailand this year. If the trends continue, there will be over 1 million Malaysians visiting Thailand this year.
