Celebrating the ‘Thai’s that bind us

2022 marks the 70th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Australia and Thailand.


And that relationship is one that is still of huge importance, Thai Ambassador to Australia Busadee Santipitaks told media earlier this week. 



“I cannot emphasise enough the importance of the people to people links that is still fundamental to the ties that bind our two countries,” she said.


It seems that not even a global pandemic can do harm to that relationship, with news that Thailand will no longer require pre-travel testing for arrivals from 1 April


“In my opinion travelling to Thailand can provide that comfortable escape simultaneously with amazing tourist attractions in a relaxing and safe atmosphere,” Santipitaks told Australian travel media at launch hosted by Tourism Authority of Thailand at Cafe Sydney on Wednesday.



The event was also attended by the Deputy Governor for International Marketing (Asia and South Pacific) Tanes Petesuwan who forgot half his luggage in his excitement to make his first overseas trip to Sydney!


He outlined the Kingdom’s five amazing new chapters and future direction for tourism, and also stressed the critical nature of Thailand’s “new way” and sustainable approach to tourism saying it would now be national policy.
