The 500-baht fee (about $14.00 USD) will be for a “tourism transformation fund,” which will help the country’s industry shift from mass tourism as well as focus on things like eco-friendly tourism, the Bangkok Post reported. Yuthasak Supasorn, the Tourism Authority of Thailand governor, said the goal is to collect 5 billion baht in the first year.
