Bad publicity about martial law, backpacker killings and police shakedowns of foreigners have harmed Thailand's reputation as a tourist magnet in past months. The tourism industry for 2015 is trying to attract more upscale visitors, as well as package tourists from China who are spending more per day than other nationalities. Here's my VOA radio report:
