More and more Thai holidaymakers have been making their way to visit casinos in Myanmar before the start of the Songkran holidays.

The Ranong Tourist Business Association President Sonchai Uitekkeng revealed on April 8 that local tourists have increasingly been visited Ranong province, with a plan to cross the border to Myanmar to try their luck in gambling.

Sonchai stated that popular casinos along the Thailand-Myanmar border are at Victoria Point (Koh Son), which is near Ranong.

He expects a surge in the number of tourists going to casinos during April 13 and 17, when the Songkran holidays are underway, especially when wind and waves are safe for travelling.-VNA
