Will Thailand Make China Visa Free?

The national news is buzzing over reports that the Thai and Chinese government's are in talks about waiving visa's for travelers between the two countries.
As visitors from China to the Kingdom in 2013 continue to head north towards the 4 million mark, the initiative could unleash even more mass numbers.
One key example of the power of visa free entry is the Russian market, which has continued to surge both nationally and here on the island.
