Thailand Aims To Revive Tourism With Cannabis And Casinos

The pandemic was a tough time for the Southeast Asian countries which were especially dependent on tourism. One of them is Thailand which is now trying to revive tourism in the country in all the innovative methods possible. Thailand aims to start casinos in its cities to bring in more visitors from other countries. Thai authorities have sought permission from the government to open casinos and entertainment complexes in all the major cities of Thailand.

Thailand aims to step up its tourism and get the visitors to spend more while visiting the country. And clearly, one of the best ways is to introduce casinos in its cities. Apart from the visitors, it will bring in money from the Thailand gamblers too. With the introduction of casinos in Greater Bangkok first, it can eventually introduce more casinos in cities like Krabi, Phang Nga & Phuket. Other tourists’ favourite places like Chiang Mai too, might have casinos.
