New campaigns by the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) expected to boost domestic travel

Due to less-complicated processes, tourism operators hope that new campaigns by the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) will continue to boost domestic travel.


Phuriwat Limthavornrat, the president of the Association of Domestic Travel, said that 60-70% of association members joined the two campaigns – Visit Thailand with 100 Baht and Shocking Price Weekday Travel, planned for November and December.


Mr. Phuriwat acknowledged that the cash handout scheme has benefited local tourism, with the recent three-day weekend of Oct 12-14 seeing a growth of over 50% in the sector, which is the highest in the past nine months.


“The new campaigns will gain more attention from Thais who travel during the high season and could increase the number of tourists travelling locally by 3%,” Mr. Phuriwat said.


The Shocking Price Weekday Travel campaign for tourism products will begin on Nov 1 on a first come, first served basis. Besides travel agencies, about 1,000 restaurants are expected to take part in the Shocking Price Weekday Travel campaign.


Some of them are popular dining places, namely Je Ngor Seafood, Rom Mai Rim Na, Praram 9 Kaiyang, Gyu Gyu Tei and Brasserie 9, said Thaniwan Koonmongkon, president of the Thai Restaurant Association.


Ms. Thaniwan said that the two-month campaign will help create brand awareness of restaurants taking part.
