Besides Bangkok, TAT is showcasing Hua Hin, Krabi, Koh Samui, Phuket, Khao Lak, Chiang Mai, Koh Yao Noi, Koh Kood, and Chiang Rai this year. Tourism was not much affected in Thailand due to recent political turmoil and TAT offices in New Delhi and Mumbai are closely working with media & travel partners to boost tourist arrivals. It is expected that the recently launched long-haul low-cost carrier Thai AirAsia X will bring more traffic to Thailand’s already popular destinations along with the uncommon destinations TAT will unveil this year, such as Pran Buri, Ayutthaya, Sukhothai, Khao Lak, Trang, Khao Yai, Chiang Rai, Koh Chang and Koh Samet. India is an important market for us and we are expecting to welcome over 1 million travellers from India this year. To strengthen our ties with India, we are planning to tie up with more partners, reach out to more Tier III cities, introduce new activities and target new segments. Currently TAT is encouraging Indian travellers to visit Thailand and take part in the Amazing Thailand Great Grand Sale, taking place from June 15 to August 15.
