Protests by hundreds of thousands of angry Thais, waving banners and shouting slogans as they marched through Bangkok over the past month, have cast a shadow over "the land of smiles".

"My new year's wish is that the political unrest will end and all industries and business will get back on track," said Ronnarong C, president of the Thailand and China Tourism Association.

Born in the years when the country was governed by the Royal Thai Army, Ronnarong, 56, witnessed the country's political system transform from dictatorship to democracy.
