Thailand has begun its visa-free initiative for visitors from China and Kazakhstan. For five months, tourists from the two countries will be granted temporary visa exemption for a 30-day stay. With the visa exemption, Thailand’s tourism authority is expecting to welcome up to 4.4 million Chinese tourists this year, up from the projected 3.5 million. Authorities have projected that the Chinese visitors will spend about 258 million baht, or more than US$7.2 million.
