Academic institutions in Thailand increasingly gain attraction from students around Asia, especially from the Chinese students. Data from the Chinese embassy estimates around 50,000 Chinese students currently enrolled in academic institutions across Thailand. Most of them came from Yunnan and Guangxi region in the southern part of China. Studying in Thailand offers affordability and a variety of studying programs, which continually increase the popularity of Thailand as the education destination.

In 2021, the Asian Education Institute reported the spending of Chinese students in Thailand. Their annual expenses were approximately 224,268 baht. Monthly expenses on accommodations were 10,000 to 15,000 Baht. Expenses on tuition fees were 90,000 baht annually. The rest are for personal expenses.

Approximately 70% of Chinese students enrolled in private universities such as Assumption University (ABAC), Dhurakij Pundit University, Bangkok University, Rangsit University, Stamford International University, Sripatum University, Krirk University, and more.
