What do Chinese Tourists Like to Do in Thailand?

In the past, the majority of Chinese visitors arrived as group tours but as they learn more and more about Thailand and logistics, the more they come as free independent travelers (FIT) These FIT tourists prefer to do their own online research on where to go and what to do on their own with trips averaging 7-10 days, according to a recent survey. Amongst the most popular things to do are joining the Songkran water splashing festival and visiting national parks and water activities around islands. Chinese tourists are keen to watch Muay Thai, taste Durians as far as the Durian orchards, and shop at floating markets. Making prayers at revered Buddhist destinations, chilling out at sunset on rooftop bars, plus street food hopping. Many take the culinary experience to the next level by taking up short Thai food cooking courses, riding elephants, and taking traditional Thai massage for relaxing comfort. Of course, dressing up in Thai school uniforms for picture taking is one of the must-do this year.
