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.
By comparison Indonesia and it's key resort destination of Bali which require visa's for Russian travelers has experienced only a fraction of the incoming traffic from one of the fastest growing global tourism catchments.
Sentiment towards Thailand for Chinese travelers remains strong though mounting concerns over a series of drownings in Phuket has creating growing concern.
For those who keep asking how deep is the China market, a visa free policy in Thailand could bring an entirely new dynamic to the face of tourism.
