One in five tourists going on holiday from key cities in this part of Russia head to the Land of Smiles.

Travellers are attracted by relatively short and easy flights, favourtable visa regime, Thai hospitality, beautiful climate and stunning architecture as well as world's best beaches and hotels. Picutres here and below of Bangkok most stunning attractions courtesy Bangkok.com

A survey by the Siberian Tourist Portal found that some 300,000 people flew to Thailand from the cities of Novosibirsk, Irkutsk and Krasnoyarsk.

Around 30% of flights to non-CIS countries (comprising many ex-Soviet states) went to Thailand, said the portal. 

‘Thailand is the most popular destination for tourists from Siberia and the Far East of Russia abroad.’
