A total of 40 overseas top travel agents visited Thailand between November 15-24, 2015 for fam trips and trade meets designed to enhance the image of Thailand as a quality leisure destination for the quality market segment.
The Amazing Thailand Luxury Fam Trip and Trade Meet covered some of the country’s finest luxury tourism products and services in Bangkok, Chiang Rai, Chiang Mai and Phuket.
It was divided into three routes to ensure that participants are exposed to the right products and services catering to the specific needs of their respective markets: America and Europe regions; ASEAN, South Asia and South Pacific region, and East Asian region. Yuthasak Supasorn, governor of Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT), said, “Promoting luxury travel is now one of the priorities of the Thai tourism industry, as we are shifting to put emphasis on promoting Thailand with the aim to grow visitor expenditure over visitor numbers and enhance the average length of stay.”
Thailand is a vibrant country with a spectacular range of products for luxury travellers. These include upscale restaurants on the rooftops of many of its five-star hotels, some of the most elegant shopping malls. Individuals searching for exclusivity can also enjoy outstanding spa, health and wellness facilities, stylish boutiques and beachfront pool villas, and well-equipped yachts and cruises in Phuket and Pattaya to accommodate the needs of classy island hoppers.
