- +

The worsening political turmoil is prompting some tourism-related agencies to revise down this year's arrivals and revenue projections. 

The Association of Thai Travel Agents (ATTA) expects a significant drop in tourist arrivals to Thailand through its members. It projects the number will be lower than 4 million, compared to 4.28 million in 2013.

In the first two months of this year, arrivals through ATTA members decreased by 30% or 228,772 from the same period last year.
