The country saw a 30% overall growth in visitors throughout 2022

The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) attributes the significant rise in UAE tourism to the country’s growing range of activities and attractions. Travel between the two countries has also become easier, with several airlines offering direct flights and new routes, including Emirates flying to Krabi and Pattaya. 

The core areas of focus for TAT and Dnata Travel include promoting Thailand's diverse range of tourism offerings and affordability, and the accessibility with competitive holiday packages, flight options and travel insurance.
