The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) along with representatives from the Airports of Thailand, the Immigration Bureau, Thai Airways International and True Corporation hosted a special welcoming ceremony to the 24 millionth visitor, Miss Sophie Czich from French Republic who arrived in the kingdom at Bangkok's Suvarnabhumi Airport today. This shows that the TAT's projection of 28.8 million visitors for 2015 is coming closer to expectation.

Miss Sophie Czich from French Republic is holding TAT's mascot Nong Sukjai at welcoming ceremony of the Thailand's 24 millionth visitor for 2015 at Suvarnabhumi Airport today.

Mr. Sugree Sithivanich, TAT's Deputy Governor for Marketing Communications said, "We've just welcomed the 23 millionth visitor of this year, the lucky tourist from Hong Kong who flew into Chiang Mai on 15 October. Now, in less than two weeks, we have eagerly welcomed the 24 millionth visitor. So we strongly believe that during the last quarter of this year which usually is the peak tourist season in Thailand, we will be welcoming more numbers of luckiest visitors and our projection of 28.8 million international tourist arrivals will be met."

Miss Sophie Czich received the "Thailand's Luckiest Visitor" certificate, on top of two economy-class return tickets from and to Thailand valid for one year, and a voucher for a five-night stay at luxury accommodation. In addition, True Corporation presented a mobile phone with a 4G sim-card and seven-day Internet usage. A luxury limousine was also provided to take her from Suvarnabhumi airport to the Thammachat pier ,Trat province by Airports of Thailand Public Co., Ltd.

The 24 millionth visitor said " This is the first time for coming to Thailand alone, and I will stay in Thailand for 1 month visiting Ko Chang in Trat, Chiang Rai, Chiang Mai, Pai in Mae Hong Son and return to Bangkok".

The "Thailand's Luckiest Visitor" welcoming events are part of the TAT's "2015 Discover Thainess" campaign, which showcases Thailand's most charming attractions: diversity of destinations, the spicy flavours of Thai food, the colour of Thai traditions, festivals and culture, and the friendliness of the Thai people. The "millionth tourist" welcoming activity has been such a success that it has now been extended to 31 December, 2015, to celebrate one of Thailand's best ever years in terms of tourist arrivals.

Mr. Sugree said, "We are confident that all the lucky tourists will love Thailand even more and will feel inspired to become a good ambassador of the kingdom. We hope that they will share their memorable experience during their trip in Thailand to their peers, families and everyone in their country. This will help strengthen the positive image of Thai tourism."
