CHIANG RAI – Millions of Chinese people visit Thailand each year. The number of Chinese tourists in the country looks set to increase during the Chinese National Day holidays that began yesterday and run until next Wednesday.

Chiang Saen immigration chief Pol Colonel Natcharit Pinpak said he had deployed more officials at the immigration checkpoint to facilitate the inflow of people, which is set to increase during the Chinese holidays.

“Many tourists have entered Thailand via Chiang Rai. They travel along the road from China to Laos and then to Chiang Rai,” he said. He added that screening measures were strict as officials were committed to preventing criminals and terrorists from trying to sneak in by posing as holidaymakers.
