Mr. Kajorndet Apichartrakul, Director of TAT Singapore Office said, “We are very pleased that Mario got such a warm reception from his Filipino fans who turned up in their thousands to get a glimpse of their super star.
Mario appeals to a young and dynamic market who would enjoy exploring the attractions of Thailand. With Mario’s help, we can reach out to people across ASEAN and Asia and let short haul tourists know that Thailand has so much to discover in terms of food, adventure, amazing scenery and friendly people.”
During the event in Manila, Mario answered questions from members of the media and the public about the attractions to be found in Thailand and he even gave the crowds a fun demonstration of Muay Thai boxing.
The Philippines are a fast growing market for tourism in Thailand and as the ASEAN Economic Community (AEC) comes into play, more and more Filipino tourists are expected to visit the kingdom and to take advantage of the free movement regulations. Thailand welcomed 310,975 visitors from the Philippines in 2015. And in the first seven months of this year, already a total of 192,847 people from the Philippines have visited Thailand.
