Chinese who have travelled to Thailand were invited to vote via the website peopleschoiceawardsthailand.com between 26 May to 8 June, 2017, in 14 categories; such as, tourist attractions, hotels, restaurants, medical and wellness services, spas, shopping centres, golf courses, etc. The voting attracted a total of 3.7 million votes, and the publicity given to this activity was estimated to reach an audience of 45 million.

They were enticed to participating in the voting activity with a lucky draw prize. The first prize is a five-day holiday for two in Thailand, including return air tickets on Thai Airways International and accommodation. The next five prizes are also return air tickets for two to Thailand on Thai Smile Airways, NokScoot Airlines, Thai AirAsia, Bangkok Airways and Thai Lion Air. Over 100 other prizes are also being offered including vouchers for accommodation, spa treatments, dining, shows and entertainment, and much more.

TAT launched the “People’s Choice Awards Thailand Voted by Chinese Tourists” project in 2015 as The Best of Thailand Awards Voted by Chinese Tourists, and renamed it to the current name in 2016. In its second year, the voting attracted over 3.2 million votes.

During the first four months of this year, Thailand welcomed 12 million visitors, spending around 620 billion Baht, an increase of 4.71% from the same period last year. In this number, 7.5 million came from East Asia generating 308 billion Baht. China remained the leading source market at about 3.2 million arrivals, who  generated 161 billion Baht in tourism revenue.
