The Thai tourism industry may lose some 120 million baht from the UK market after the collapse of travel giant Thomas Cook, said Srisuda Wanapinyosak, deputy governor of Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) for Europe, Africa, the Middle East and the Americas.
Ms Srisuda said the estimate is based on 27,000 room nights for visitors who used Thomas Cook in 2018. Phuket was the preferred destination, with 13,000 room nights, while Bangkok had 2,100.
The closure with immediate effect stranded an estimated 150,000 Britons abroad, awaiting repatriation. She said TAT is working with the British embassy and other destination management companies.
