The Tourism Authority of Thailand has stated that the political problems in
Bangkok, with a State of Emergency announced by the government on September 1,
have resulted in a sharp drop in tourism arrivals.

immediate effect has been a fall of between 20 and 30 percent in the number of
people visiting Thailand.
As the present time is the low season for tourism, there is as yet no indication
