MOSCOW, May 22. /ITAR-TASS/. In Thailand, where martial law was imposed several days ago, some 45,000 Russian tourists are holidaying, the Association of Tour Operator of Russia (ATOR) said on Thursday with reference to data of the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT).
About half of them, according to the ATOR, came to the country through federal tour operators, the rest used the services of regional travel companies of the Far East and Ural regions for which Thailand is a popular whole-year destination.
Russian tour operators say that none of the holidaying Russians has faced problems in connection with the introduction of martial law in the country. There have been no requests on early return to the homeland, ATOR added. It also said that the high season in Thailand has come to an end, many federal tour operators have already discontinued their flight programs to Thailand and send tourists only on individual requests.
According to TAT representatives, the imposition of martial law has not affected the life in Thailand, local people and arriving foreigners can move around the country as usual, as no curfew has been introduced in Thailand and its capital Bangkok yet. Bangkok’s airports are operating in the normal regime, the country’s Tourism Authority added.
