New TAT drive: Visitors from Eastern Europe and Central Asia “will pay more” | Samui Times

A report on a tourism trade fair in Singapore by TNA suggested that tourists from eastern Europe and Central Asia would pay more than those from existing markets.

And a story from India indicates visitors from the sub-continent are being wooed with special promotions to visit Thailand.

For years people from western countries have claimed they are the big spenders – now the Tourism Authority of Thailand appears to beg to differ as it tries to reach targets of nearly 40 million visitors. 

The TAT was joined by 30 trade organizations at the ITB Asia 2019 fair in Singapore.

Coconut products were reportedly handed out to give participants a taste of what Thailand could offer. 

But the buzzword countries now being targeted were those in eastern Europe and Central Asia. These would add to big existing markets like the Chinese.

Meanwhile the Times of India online reported on a program entitled “Fly Me to Thailand”.

This is being run by the TAT in conjunction with Bangkok Airways – gifts, privileges and discounts are being promised to Indians going to Thailand. 

One such incentive is an 800 baht Central gift voucher for three travellers to enjoy. 

The Times of India said that Thailand was “growing in popularity” for nationals from their country.
