Some 10,000 Chinese tourists have been invited to a feast in Thailand that has broken the Guinness World Record for the biggest sticky rice mango banquet yet, and it’s a unique way to win tourists back from China.
The dessert, featuring 6,000 mangoes and 15 tonnes of sticky rice was announced the world biggest in an event themed “We Care About You” near Bangkok. The feast was held on Sunday by the tourism panel of the National Legislative Assembly, coordinated by the Association of Thai Travel Agents.
Chinese tourists were invited to enjoy the most famous Thai dessert along with Thai food and fruits along with Thai-Chinese performances.
Organizers said that they want to build a good image of Thai hospitality with the help of this event.
Chinese arrivals boomed in early 2018, which got stunted by a deadly ferry sinking in July 2018, killing 47 Chinese tourists.
