MOSCOW, February 03. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian tourists, who were planning to have a rest in Thailand, annulled their tours due to protest actions in favor of the Indian State of Goa and resorts of the United Arab Emirates, executive director of the Association of Tour Operators of Russia (ATOR) Maya Lomidze told Itar-Tass.
Lomidze said the pace of sales had been reduced. The tourists, who depart to Thai resorts, prefer flights to Phuket, she added.
The Russian Union of Travel Industry reports that most Russian citizens leave for Thailand’s beaches. Tour operators took a decision not to organize tours around Bangkok and tourists should depart to the country’s resorts, the Russian Union of Travel Industry noted.
The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) reports protest actions are held in Bangkok central streets. The situation at Thai resorts remains calm, TAT reports.
Earlier, the Russian Foreign Ministry and the Russian Federal Tourism Agency recommended Russian citizens to refrain from visiting Bangkok.
