In a new YouGov survey commissioned by Airbnb, data indicated that:
85 percent of Thais polled were optimistic about Southeast Asia’s travel rebound, and believe that the travel resurgence will benefit local communities and the national economy.
35 percent said they were excited to travel within the region more frequently in the future, after not being able to for so long. When asked what they believe would add to the appeal of local destinations for international travellers, more than half of Thais polled pointed to:
-Hospitable locals who are willing to make guests feel welcome and point out hidden gems
-Accommodation with family-friendly amenities
-An emphasis on local food and culture
-Ease of access to off-the-beaten-path destinations
-Availability of accommodation options at every price point
