thailand-tWith a focus on promotional campaigns and sports tourism, Thailand is striving strong enough to turn the Kingdom into a regional tourism hub.


Thailand will, thus, focus on, among others, promoting sports tourism activities to attract more international visitors to the country in 2017, Tourism and Sports Minister Kobkarn Wattanavrangkura told journalists on Thursday.


These include an international running marathon in the northeastern Khon Kaen Province and an inter-provincial 300-kilometre-bike race between northeastern provinces of Khon Kaen, Kalasin, Sakon Nakhon and Nakhon Phanom bordering Lao PDR later this month, as well as the establishment of a regional sports school to attract international visitors and athletes.


The state-run Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) will also organise a Thai tourism festival at Bangkok’s Lumpini Park during Jan 25-29, 2017, the 37th of its kind, themed “Thai Style Tourism, Stylish and Deep” during 2pm-10pm with no entrance fee.


This year’s festival is more special, as it will coincide with the Chinese New Year Festival, and welcome international visitors to the same venue and same period.
