TAT urges expats to travel and boost year-end tourism

The Tourism Authority of Thailand has just launched a new campaign to boost travel over the upcoming cool season and encourage expatriates living in Thailand to visit more of the country.

Dubbed the “Amazing Thailand Expat Privileges” campaign, the promotion offers up to 80% discounts on a variety of services including accommodation, restaurants, health & wellness, and travel.

TAT governor Thapanee Kiatphaibool says the campaign aims to boost domestic tourism and help achieve the 2024 tourism goals, which are targeting total revenue of 3 trillion baht.

Under the campaign, 10,000 privileges will be granted for visits to national parks across Thailand, allowing free entrance to expats and foreign tourists between December 2023 and February 2024.

True Corporation is partnering with TAT for the campaign, with its its chief marketing executive Tanaphon Manavutiveth noting that about 54% (.2 million people) of expats in Thailand are customers of True-DTAC, including both roaming and new number services. Most of them come from China, Hong Kong, South Korea, India and Southeast Asia.

Tourists who choose to purchase the Thailand tourist SIM at a True Shop will find the campaign in the sales menu and receive a welcome SMS after enabling the SIM to remind them about the campaign.

True–DTAC is also offering a range of special deals and discounts from more than 200 establishments all over the country to their users. The privileges cover a variety of categories, from hotels and cruises, restaurants, spas and sports clubs, as well as waterparks.

The campaign is also giving away 500-baht vouchers for use at Bangchak gas stations.

Expats and tourists can redeem and use the special deals until February 29 by registering on the website to receive the discounts. Once registered, they should show the redeemed Promo Code along with their passport at the designated establishments.
