Indian travel agents visit new Thai tourism products, gets confidence boost
Spectacular new travel and tourism products emerging all over Thailand were the primary focus of a familiarisation trip for 30 top travel agents from the Indian market organised by the Tourism Authority of Thailand between 3-10 March, 2014.
The group visited Chiang Mai, Hua Hin, and Bangkok.
On March 6, the group had a table-top business networking session with members of the North Thailand travel trade and then visited the Chiang Mai Convention Centre before departing for Hua Hin, via Bangkok.
On 7-8 March, the agents visited Hua Hin Railway Station (Thailand’s most beautiful train station), Plearnwan live museum, Cicada night market and Santorini Park before taking some time to shop at the Venezia Mall.
The agents departed for Bangkok in the afternoon of 8 March, 2014, and were hosted to a business networking dinner with the Thai travel trade at the Dusit Thani Hotel.
All the participating agents said they were most pleased and impressed with the organisation and content of the trip, which they said will go a long way towards helping them design creative and interesting tour packages for their clients.
TAT Governor Mr. Thawatchai Arunyik said, “Although the focus of this trip was more on introducing the range of new products, we also included some long-standing natural and cultural attractions which are very popular with families, especially children.”
