Thailand is fast becoming a hot destination for tourists from China, providing a boost for the country's economy.

15 years ago fewer than 500,000 Chinese people chose a Thai holiday, but soon the country's beaches and historic sites will be seen by more tourists from China than any other nation.

The BBC's Jonah Fisher has been sharing holiday fun in Thailand, with some Chinese visitors, to discover what it means for Thailand's tourism industry.
