Russian Tourism in Phuket and Thailand

Looking back a couple of years, it is correct to say the number of Russian tourists visiting Phuket has dropped dramatically due to the great devaluation of their currency. The good news is, the numbers are on the rise again.

More than half of the total Russians visiting Thailand prefer Phuket. 51% to be precise. Pattaya is the second most visited place in Thailand by Russians, Bangkok follows these two. As of 2016, Russian tourists have brought/spent about 30 Billion Thai Baht in the Land of Smiles.

Russian currency still hasn’t recovered to explain this increase in Russian tourists, but the temporary political crisis between Turkey and Russia, and the Metrojet crash in Egypt in 2015 made Phuket a more popular choice among Russian travelers.

The number of Russian arrivals made its peak in 2013 with almost 2 million tourists. This number has decreased dramatically over the last couple of years, but in 2016 it increased to 1.2 Million.

By the look at the Russian Rubles trend and the increase in the oil prices, it might be accurate to say 2017 will be better in terms of the number of Russian tourists visiting Thailand.
