The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) and Thailand-based Locanation Company Limited launched the newly-developed asq.locanation.com website in cooperation under the ‘ASQ Paradise’ project for providing arriving foreign visitors with top-notch information regarding quarantine standards and control at Alternative State Quarantine (ASQ) hotels located around Thailand.
To quote TAT Deputy Governor for Tourism Products and Business, Ms. Thapanee Kiatphaibool, “TAT’s collaboration for the ‘ASQ Paradise’ project emphasizes the strength of Thailand’s tourism infrastructure even as the country is in the grip of the global pandemic crisis. TAT sees an opportunity during this crisis to show other aspects of our tourism potential to the world. Not only do we retain our outstanding hospitality and travel services, but also the highest possible standards for pandemic control and quarantine.”
The asq.locanation.com website is available in English and Chinese languages. It provides a 360-degree pre-entry quarantine service platform offering services ranging from room reservations to information related to individual travel to Thailand and other services.
Currently, the website features 107 participating ASQ hotels in Thailand, offering quarantine packages ranging from 27,000 Baht to 220,000 Baht for a two-week period at three to five-star hotels.
All hotels joining the platform need to pass strict standards placed by the Ministry of Public Health.
Locanation is one of the companies receiving a TAT Travel Tech Startup Season 2 Award under the Innovative Tourism Promotion category.
Locanation is also working with The Central Group of Companies, The Mall Group, King Power International Group and Total Access Communication Public Company Limited (DTAC) to provide online shopping services to asq.locanation.com website’s users.
Besides, via collaboration with Dhipaya Insurance Public Company Limited, Locanation is aiming to add a wide variety of insurance and health insurance packages suiting requirements of individual travelers.
