The number of foreigners tourists who visit Thailand



Thailand is one of the countries where many foreigners want to visit since there are many interesting and attractive places, delicious food, or good facilities, especially BTS or MRT, that allow you to travel easily. Tourism is a key factor in stimulating the Thai economy and GDP. However, during the COVID-19 epidemic, Thailand is closed due to government regulations to restrict the spread of COVID-19, resulting in a reduction in Thai GDP. I’d like to list the top five number of visitors from each nation who visited Thailand before the COVID-19 outbreak. And for the first quarter of 2565, consider the following:
