Thailand’s status as the marine leisure hub of Asia remains undiminished despite the challenges of the pandemic. Famed for its islands, stunning offshore seascape, and tropical beaches, Thailand is the favored destination for boat owners in the region and a popular choice for marine leisure tourists from all around the world. An industry valued in the billions pre-pandemic, the Thailand International Boat Show 2023 will kick-start its revival and be a valuable economic driver for Phuket and Thailand going forward.
