The Cabinet approved the amended version of the Bt22.4-billion domestic tourism campaign at its meeting on Tuesday (June 30), said deputy government spokesperson Traisulee Traisoranakul.

The campaign, which will run from July 1 to October 31, aims to bring the tourism industry back to life after it was brought to its knees by the Covid-19 outbreak.

The campaign includes a government subsidy on hotel stays totalling 5 million nights, restaurants and tourism activities as well as up to 2 million domestic air tickets.

The air ticket subsidy gives travellers a 40 per cent discount on airfare, but not exceeding Bt1,000 per seat.

The campaign also includes a Bt2,000-per-head subsidy for 1.2 million village health volunteers and medical staff at tambon hospitals for study tours.
