TAT eyes travel bubble with South Korea – China on radar too


The Tourism of Thailand’s new deputy director of marketing in the region said that to mark his elevation he was instructing 17 offices in Asia to work on new marketing plans for the Covid/post Covid era.

He said that his main focus would be on China, Hong Kong and Taiwan getting Asians to visit Thailand following on from the restart programs in Phuket and Koh Samui, reported Bangkok Business News.

Top of Thanes Petchsuwan’s to do list was to meet with the new Chinese ambassador who has arrived in Thailand to ask when the Asian giant will be allowing their nationals to travel.

Also he said that he will be investigating the possibility of setting up a travel bubble between Thailand and South Korea so that visitors to either country would not need to quarantine at all.
