Find out about the unique characteristics and expectations of tourists from the strong new growth markets of Russia, India, China and Indonesia – the ‘RICHI’ countries.
During the “Mapping The Future” conference on May 19 that the PATA Thailand Chapter and partners organized with the TAT, attendees said that they needed more information on the behavioral aspects of some of the “newer” markets that have huge importance for the present and future of the tourism industry in Thailand.
