The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) hosted the ‘Amazing Thailand, Amazing New Chapters to Indonesia 2022’ roadshow in Jakarta to reiterate Thailand as a preferred destination for Indonesian travellers and as a tourism hub for the ASEAN region.
On the occasion, Mr. Tanes Petsuwan, TAT Deputy Governor for International Marketing – Asia and South Pacific, said, “TAT fully recognises the importance of the ASEAN tourist markets to Thailand, and we are actively working to promote year-round inbound traffic from this region. The Amazing Thailand, Amazing New Chapters to Indonesia 2022 roadshow is a key component of the plan to grow Indonesian visitor arrivals and is being organised ahead of one of the peak travel periods for that country – the December school holidays.”
The event commenced with opening remarks by H.E. Mr. Prapan Disyatat, Ambassador of Thailand to Indonesia.
This was followed by a Thailand tourism update, which placed emphasis on both stimulating Indonesian travel to Thailand starting now and building relationships with Indonesian tourism operators like travel agencies and airlines that would lead to future tourism growth. Forging alliances with local partners also formed part of the plans to increase the sales potential of Thai tourism in the international market to reach target groups.
