Quick Facts

  • 75% - hotel occipancy
  • THB 6,084 - ADR (average daily rate)

2016 saw international arrivals increase by 7.5% y-o-y to 20.8 million. This represents a more moderate increase compared to the 24.8% seen in 2015, mainly due to the slowed growth of visitors from Mainland China in response to the crackdown on
zero-dollar tours in late 2016. As at YTD November 2017, arrivals had risen 20.6% y-o-y to 21.1 million.

Mainland China is Bangkok’s largest source market, contributing almost 30% of international visitors as at YTD July 2017 according to latest available statistics. Despite the government crackdown, Bangkok tourism was not significantly affected, with strong y-o-y growth from South Korea (20.1%) and India (17.4%) further supplementing visitor arrivals.

Approximately 1,900 keys were added in 2017.

Approximately 9,800 rooms remain in the pipeline between 2018 and 2020. In terms of location, we are seeing a shift beyond the traditional Sukhumvit area, as the Riverside and
Ratchadapisek areas gain traction.

Despite stable arrival figures from Mainland China, Bangkok continues to see strong growth in visitor numbers from other major source markets, particularly from South Korea and India, as the government shifts focus from arrival figures to visitor spending by targeting higher-spending niche markets. The newly released first edition of the Michelin Guide to Bangkok will further strengthen Bangkok’s forefront
position as a culinary destination.
