BANGKOK (NNT) – The Thai Government is gearing up to promote Phuket as a world-class tourist destination, hoping to welcome one million foreign visitors over the next six months and to generate at least 60 billion baht in revenue.

Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha explained the “Phuket transformation” initiative on his Facebook page on Friday, saying that this program aims to attract up to a million high-quality foreign travelers as well as those who are on a “workation” during the 4th quarter of this year all the way to the 1st quarter of 2022. That is an average of 5,000 visitors per day.
