The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) has recently officiated “One Card: Four Provinces” to facilitate visitors travelling in 4 provinces of lower central Thailand: Samut Sakorn, Samut Songkram, Petchaburi and Prachuab Khirikhan.
The cardholder can benefit discount from many tourist attractions, accommodations, restaurants and souvenir shops in the 4 provinces, said Mrs. Pinnat Charoenphol, the director of the TAT, Prachuab Khirikhan Office.
Conveniently located very close to Bangkok, the 4 provinces are famous for beautiful beaches, namely Chao Samran, Cha-Am, Hua Hin, Ao Noi, Ao Prachuab and Ao Manao. In Petchaburi, visitors usually go to Kaeng Krachan National Park and admire the mystifying mist at the peak of Khao Phanern Thung. In Samut Sakorn and Samut Songkram, visitors can learn how salt is produced. Above all, the 4 provinces are popular in terms of rare archeological sites, unique tradition and culture and mouth-watering seafood.
The “One Card: Four Provinces” project will certainly promote tourism in the concerned areas, said Mrs. Pinnat. The card is valid for one year – from 15 June 2011 to 15 June 2012.
