2023’s First Koh Samui Cruise Expected to Earn 5 Million Baht


The first high-end cruise ship of the year, Mein Schiff 5 has just docked in Koh Samui. An estimated 5 million baht was made in revenue from the over 3,000 European visitors that disembarked from the ship for a day of sightseeing and shopping.

Koh Samui’s mayor, Chayapon Intarasupa, stated that the island’s tourist industry was given a chance to meet and greet the passengers of the Mein Schiff 5, which arrived at Nathon Pier on Koh Samui on January 14 after a voyage from Vietnam. Travelers saw the island’s neighborhoods and attractions as residents celebrated Children’s Day.

The mayor has stated that the city’s officials and businesses have been instructed to make accommodations for and guarantee the safety of visitors. Meanwhile, operators have been urged to treat visitors fairly and deliver high-quality services when they sightsee, dine on seafood, receive massages, and buy for mementos all around the island. Over five million Thai baht were added to the economy, he said, thanks to the coming of these tourists.

A large number of Europeans have visited Koh Samui in recent months. Both the government and the corporate sector have shown their willingness to accommodate an influx of Chinese tourists over the Lunar New Year by bolstering infrastructure and security.

Checkpoints have been put up and efforts have been made by local authorities to guarantee the safety of all forms of transportation. Most people in the area have now been immunized against COVID-19, and booster shots have been given to individuals in high-risk categories.

In order to keep the faith of foreign tourists, the authorities are demanding that all employees on the island be properly vaccinated.
