ThailandAccording to results of the first six months of 2011 Thailand has shifted from the fifth to the first position in the priority list of Russian citizens, reports Geo Meridian portal.

For this time the country was visited by twice as much number of Russian tourists, comparing to the same period of the past year. These record figures allowed tourists from Russia to outstrip the English who quite recently were the most numerous European guests of Thailand.

This year Thailand has already been visited by 28% more foreign tourists than in the previous year.

So, Thailand is positively driving back Egypt, which lost significant part of its tourist traffic because of recent political events.
