The Tourism Authority of Thailand is working with Bangkok Airways (BA) to lure more visitors from Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar and Vietnam – the so-called CLMV countries – as well as Malaysia, Singapore and India with a “Fly Me to Thailand” campaign.

“The aim is to attract more tourists to boost income during the green season,” said Klissada Ratanapruk, the agency’s executive director for Asean, South Asia and South Pacific, referring to the rainy season.

Klissada said visitors from those nations flying with BA in a group of three or more anytime this year would be eligible for “WOW Deal” exclusive privileges. They include a Bt800 voucher for shopping at department stores and discounts at more than 63 hotels, restaurants, entertainment venues and spa lounges.

“The number of tourists from CLMV and Malaysia, Singapore and India is expected to increase by 25,000 thanks to this project, generating approximately Bt924 million,” Klissada said.
