Thailand has welcomed 9.47 million foreign tourists so far this year, generating about 391 billion baht (US$11 billion) of revenue, according to government spokeswoman Traisuree Taisaranakul.
The expected increase in Chinese travellers will further fuel growth in the country's tourism industry, Ms Traisuree said in a statement Saturday.
The majority of visitors to Thailand this year came from Asian nations, such as Malaysia and India, she added.
