The ‘Thailand Tourist Police Road Show 2013’ has been launched to boost tourists’ confidence in their safety and convenience.
Tourist Police Chief Major General Roi Engkapairoj along with the Director General of the Department of Tourism recently presided over the launching ceremony of the campaign at the Railway Park, Bangkok.
The campaign is aimed at ensuring police readiness for security protection at tourist attractions nationwide, especially during the high tourist season at the end of the year. It consists of five Tourist Police mobile stations, each equipped with a toilet, sofa bed, kitchen, LCD TV, security surveillance system, office equipment, an ipad and wifi for searching tourist information.
The mobile stations will be sent to four tourist cities, namely, Ayutthaya, Phuket, Pattaya, and Hua Hin.
The project is expected to boost the image of Thai tourism and help the country raise 2 trillion baht in tourism revenue annually during the next five years as targeted by the government.
