Bangkok, 11 January, 2016 – The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) Dubai Office in cooperation with the Royal Thai Embassy Tehran and Mahan Air, hosted a familiarisation trip for 26 travel agents from Tehran and four social media influencers based in Iran in a bid to highlight Thailand as a Muslim and family friendly destination.
Mrs. Juthaporn Rerngronasa, TAT Deputy Governor for International Marketing (Europe, Africa, Middle East and Americas) said, “The Iran market is one of the most dynamic markets in our region. Iranian tourists in Thailand have shown an incredible development over last year. Based on a recent survey, Thailand still leads in the top ten for Iranian outbound travellers in terms of facilities; such as, hotel accommodation, theme and leisure parks, dining, shopping and general entertainment, a clear manifestation that Thailand is still on the top of the travel list of Iranians.”
Held during 4-12 January, 2016, the fam trip featuring Bangkok and Pattaya was organised in two batches with the 30 participants divided into two groups. The first batch was organised from 4-9 January, and the second phase is currently being held from 6-12 January.
Highlighted excursions have included the Cartoon Network Amazone theme park and Art in Paradise museum in Pattaya, and the floating market, a Chao Phraya River cruise and shopping experiences in Bangkok.
Participants from both groups also joined the TAT’s special buyers-meet-sellers session held on 8 January at The Landmark Bangkok, and met with more than 55 Thai tourism representatives from hotels, recreation and theme parks, and travel companies.
