In an attempt to accelerate tourism recovery in the provinces of Phuket, Krabi and Trang, the Thai travel and tourism industry has re-doubled efforts to promote domestic tourism.

All travellers, particularly residents of Thailand, planning to make a trip to Phuket with family and friends between July to October 2005 will be able to take advantage of this special promotional offer.

Individuals planning to travel with friends or family members will be able to purchase a 3-day/2-night travel package to Phuket at a special promotional rate starting from 3,200 baht per person. The travel packages are being serviced by various airlines namely, Thai Airways International, Bangkok Airways, Orient Thai Airlines and Air Asia in conjunction with hotel and resort partners.

International visitors wishing to travel to the three holiday destinations will also be able to enjoy the offer — simply by purchasing the travel package upon arrival in Thailand.

Packages featuring travel on Thai Airways International or Bangkok Airways to a choice of three destinations — Phuket, Krabi and Trang — range from 4,000 baht minimum to 5,500 baht. For travel to Phuket on Orient Thai Airlines and Air Asia, promotional packages range from 3,200 baht to 4,700 baht.

Each of the travel packages features a return trip air-ticket, 3-day/2-night accommodation, twin-sharing, at a participating hotel or resort, two breakfasts and airport-hotel transfers; the promotional price excludes airport tax, insurance, administrative fees, fuel surcharge and VAT.

Travellers who have purchased the promotional package will also be presented with a special discount card and leisure and entertainment guide to Phuket. During their stay on the island resort, visitors will be able to also take advantage of discount offers extended by over 300 participating travel and tourism operators. In addition to shopping and dining offers, these include discounts on tour programs and special interest activities such as yachting, canoeing and diving.

For individuals who enjoy the company of family or friends during their travel, there is no better time to be re-discovering and enjoying Phuket,

    What did you get for this entry?
    It’s commercial advertising what you do here.

    I don’t see that there is anything wrong with promoting a Tourism Authority of Thailand initiative to encourage people considering travelling to the tourism crippled area of Phuket – but if Teazor is getting money, I hope she’ll send some my way :)

    Oh, thanks a lot for your invitation, but I’m not living in Bangkok. But if you don’t mind, I’ll post my comments here now and then when I have to feel to say something.
