Thai government promotes 18 measures to reach target of 39 million tourists

The cabinet of economic ministers earlier this week approved 18 tourism stimulation measures which, the government is confident to attract the targeted 39.8 million tourists.

Deputy government spokesperson Traisulee Traisoranakul said the measures consist of short-term, medium-term and long-term initiatives. They include short-term financial and legal measures to stimulate tourism markets such as the Amazing Thailand Grand Sale "Passport Privileges" with offers of a 30-70% discount for tourists.

Medium and long-term measures include calling for the registration of lodging facilities and special credits for lodging operators and the organizing of world-class expositions or activities.

One very interesting measure being introduced under the Thailand Tourism project consists of two campaigns. One campaign called "100 Baht for All Destinations throughout Thailand" will be open for registration on November 11, November 12, December 11 and December 12.

People can register via the Tourism Authority of Thailand’s website.

The other campaign called "Shocking Price on Weekdays" is offered to people who take a trip to a Thai destination between Mondays and Thursdays, beginning in November until the end of December.
