What happened at the Thailand Appreciation Lunch?


The Tourism Authority of Thailand Australia team curated a beautiful pre-Christmas gathering at Blue Ginger restaurant in Balmain, Sydney to celebrate two important things: Thailand reopening and our freedom from lockdown just before December arrived. 

 

The exclusive event was attended by TAT friends from the Royal Thai Consulate, Thai Airways, Luxury Escapes, Planetdwellers, Flight Centre, Helloworld, Travel Zoo, Hoot Holidays, My Overseas Wedding, Play by Afterpay and Complete Travel Marketing.

 

 

TAT Director of Oceania Suladda Sarutilavan introduced the upcoming tourism marketing campaign “Visit Thailand Year 2022” with several activities to promote the reopening of the kingdom’s three Amazing New Chapters.

 

Chapter 1 will see TAT highlight tourism products and services that awaken travellers’ five senses, such as delicious Thai food and the picturesque nature.

 

Chapter 2 titled The One You Love, TAT will focus on specific segments like families, couples and friends and invite them to create wonderful memories in Thailand.

 

Chapter 3, The Earth We Care, will highlight how nature’s chance to revitalise due to Covid-19 situation has increased ecotourism awareness among the world’s travellers and how their behaviour impact the environment.

 

In addition, other segments to highlight include gastronomy, wellness and workation which has become a growing trend when the pandemic has allowed people to work remotely in a destination they wish.

 

 

TAT Marketing Manager, Sherly Handjojo, presented the quarantine-free procedures for Australian and New Zealand travellers. Australia and New Zealand being two of the exempted countries certainly help our office promote Thailand again to travellers in this market. 

 

Travellers must follow Test & Go procedure to get their Thailand Pass application approved. No more than 72 hours before travelling, travellers must complete their RT-PCR test, with a Medical Certificate confirming negative result from COVID-19 for international travel.

 

 

Everyone dressed in Christmas colours, some even brought their own Christmas lights for a neck piece. Champagne and gift vouchers were rewarded to agents playing trivia and festive games. Best dressed award was handed to Stephanie Jones from Hoot Holidays.
