TAT to organise 8 events to bring back the famous Thai “Smile”
Friday 13, August 2010
The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) will organise eight special events around the theme of the famous Thai smile in a bid to rebuild the good image of Thai tourism and facilitate the return to normalcy following the recent political disturbances.
Ms Pensuda Priaram, the TAT’s Deputy Governor for Tourism Products and Business, stated that the “Smile@Siam” events will be held in August-September as a sequel to the “Smile@Ratchaprasong” event, which was organised earlier at Bangkok’s busy Ratchaprasong Intersection and enjoyed tremendous success.
She said the activity is designed to help restore the liveliness of the Thai capital and the provincial areas, rebuild confidence among foreign tourists and promote domestic tourism. Details of the events are as follows:
The events in the three provinces is aimed at boosting domestic tourism between the regions and contributing to a better distribution of tourism income across the country.
TAT expects that these events will help both domestic and foreign tourists further enjoy their shopping, entertainment and sight-seeing experience.
More and more travellers think that researching and planning a European city break is half the fun and they're not interested in pre-arranged trips or escorted tours. Self-guided tours offer a lot of advantages but require some guidance and good resources.
With the recent wild fires, disrupting flights and increasing air pollution, environmental quality is a growing factor in attracting tourists.
