Chinese touristsIn a new campaign aiming to attract more Chinese tourists, Thailand will hold an online polling which Chinese can rate tourist attractions and hotels in Thailand will start from Tuesday, said Thailand’s tourism authority.

 
The online popular vote, or 2016 People’s Choice Awards Thailand Voted by Chinese Tourists, is aimed at getting vital feedback from Chinese tourists about their favorite things when visiting Thailand, said the Tourism Authority of Thailand in a press conference held in Bangkok.

 
There are 17 categories including destinations, hotels, airlines, food and so on to be rated by Chinese people from Tuesday to June 19.

 
Explaining the voting procedure, Nathan Upalawanna, senior sales consultant from Top Space, a company providing technical support for the poll said, “Everyone who has an account of two popular Chinese instant messaging apps Wechat and QQ can easily login a website designed for the poll, which will be advertised on popular Chinese websites and social media.”

 
The authority hope a 1.5 million people will join the online poll, and said about 10 of them may get free flight tickets from China to Thailand.

 

Hotels, restaurants and other shops joining the competition judged by Chinese online voters will get certificates to prove the recognition.

 

The result of the poll and winners of free trips to Thailand will be released on June 27.
Chinese tourists now account for about 30 percent of total foreign tourists visiting the kingdom, which is the biggest share.
