(Dubai, 2014) The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) together with the Airport of Thailand Public Company Limited (AOT) and the Immigration Bureau have come together for the promotion of February to become the ‘Month of Romance’ for all types of couples visiting the kingdom. As part of the promotion, couples travelling together will be able to expedite their arrival in Thailand through the Premium Lanes located at Thailand’s leading international airport - Suvarnabhumi Airport in Bangkok, for a fast track through immigration. Couples will also be provided with a ‘Romance Sticker’ which will entitle holders to special souvenirs, a complimentary photo session and entry into a lucky draw with the opportunity to win various prizes such as complimentary accommodation, spa, and dining experiences, as well as discount cards and vouchers. To take advantage of the special promotion couples simply need to register at one of the ‘Amazing Thailand Amazing Romance’ counters located at Suvarnabhumi Airport on arrival.
Despite the continuing political demonstrations in some parts of central Bangkok, the rest of the country remains as normal. This includes the key tourism cities of Chiang Mai, Phuket, Samui, Hat Yai, Hua Hin/Cha-am and Pattaya as well as secondary cities; such as, Kanchanaburi, Chiang Rai, Khon Kaen, Nakhon Ratchasima, Nong Khai, Rayong and many more. Naturally, many of Thailand’s most romantic hillside and island resorts remain completely untouched by any of the disruptions caused by the demonstrations in Bangkok, making the kingdom perfect for a romantic sojourn.
Addressing a packed media conference at the ASEAN Tourism Forum on 22 January, 2014, Tourism Authority of Thailand Governor Mr. Thawatchai Arunyik said that while it cannot be denied that some major parts of Bangkok are facing transport and traffic disruptions due to the ongoing political protests, visitors can still have a perfectly good time in the provinces.
The Amazing Thailand Amazing Romance 2014 campaign will run throughout the month of February 2014 along with many resorts and hotels throughout the country offering special Valentine’s Day, Romance and Honeymoon packages especially during the month.
