BANGKOK - About 100,000 tourists from China and Hong Kong are expected to visit Thailand during the Chinese New Year next month and they would generate approximately 4.2 billion baht in tourism revenue, Tourism Council of Thailand (TCT) president Piyaman Techapaiboon said on Wednesday. 

Ms Piyaman also said many foreign tourists have voiced their concerns about safety regarding the use of fireworks, about transportation problems, and inflated prices of goods and services.

She said Thailand must address these issues as well as other problems to better accommodate tourists and regain their confidence.
