December calls for holidays and travel plans. But, after the pandemic, Thailand has faced a dip in its tourism industry. Further, local tour operators are facing a tough time with the ongoing situation. To tackle this issue and provide assistance to local businesses, the government of Thailand is ready with their campaign ‘Travel Thailand: More Amazing Than Ever’. Here is what this campaign is all about.
Thailand’s ‘Travel Now, Travel Free’ Fair
The ‘Travel Now, Travel Free’ campaign is to promote domestic travel within the country. According to Thapanee Kiatphaibool, deputy governor for the Tourism Authority Of Thailand, the number of local trips and one-day trips has declined severely. This fair will help increase the demand for local travel, and the occupancy rates will even out at fifty percent. As December is a month of holidays, an increase in local tourism is expected. This fair will surely attract travellers. Each province has lined up certain attractions and entertainment for these tourists.
Special Thing About Travel Fair
The most special thing about this fair is the travel packages. This includes overnight stays at Keeree Warin Chiewlarn Resort and The Chic Lipe. Also, they have a one-day trip to Ko He in Phuket. Other than the trips, there are vouchers that the participating travellers can avail of. They even have a golden hour from 1:00 pm -2:00 pm and 4:00 pm – 5:00 pm for renting a car or booking a room.
These travel offers are a great way to boost internal travel and domestic tourism. The Thailand government is planning to organise a Thailand Travel Mart Plus as well.
