Press reports are rife with news that Russian tourism to the Kingdom is in decline.

While year-on-year growth has occurred up to the middle part of 2014, there appears to be a sharp impact as a result of the crisis in the Ukraine.

Two key resort markets especially susceptible to Russian visitor volatility are Phuket and Pattaya.
