Abstract: This research aims to examine: tourist’s perceptions, the factors related to revisiting Thailand, and significant relationship between tourist’s experience and duration of their stays in Thailand. The information was collected by surveying foreign tourists in Bangkok area using mixed research methodology. Quantitative Research Area was assigned to collect data from foreign tourists using a questionnaire. The participants for this study were selected through the process of accidental sampling. The samples are the 512 foreign tourists who visited Bangkok from April 1st to 30th, 2019. The study can be concluded that the most influencing factor to tourism in Thailand is the suggestions and advice received from tourist’s acquaintances, which mostly give positive influences toward the decision to visit Thailand. The real advice and suggestions from tourist’s acquaintances carried more influence than from other media.
