The TAT has said that wedding tourism has become immensely sought after for Indian visiting Thailand. It aims to hold around 400 wedding tourism events this year. Around 300 Indian wedding events have been booked already, mostly in Phuket, for the entire year.

Indians comprise the largest tourist group forThailand this year, with 100,884 Indian arrivals in the country during the period between January 1 and May 24.
In Phuket, among the countries with maximum visitors visiting Thailand are India, Australia, the UK,Russia,Singapore,Malaysia, Germany, the US, the UAE and Saudi Arabia.
