PATA set to shape Thailand tourism recovery programme

The Asia's most influential tourism organization - Pacific Asia Travel Association (PATA) is to help shape a recovery plan for tourism in Thailand once the situation in Bangkok has stabilised.

A PATA delegation led by new Chairman Hiran Cooray met with Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) Governor Mr Suraphon Svetasreni. PATA HQ and the PATA Chapter in Thailand will 'assist the TAT in the recovery phase'. Also present at the meeting, held in Bangkok, was immediate-past PATA Chairman Mrs Phornsiri Manoharn. Mrs Manoharn is also a former Governor of the TAT.

"PATA emphasises that travel to Thailand is still safe. The major part of Bangkok remains open and accessible for tourists and business travelers with hotels, shops and tourist sites open for business. The popular tourist resorts such as Phuket, Koh Samui, Krabi and Pattaya are unaffected by the protests in Bangkok city centre," says PATA CEO Greg Duffell.


Accoring to Andrew Jacka, President of Thai Association's statement on FACEBOOK that Thai Hotels Association is seeking USD150,000,000 (maximum USD1.5million per hotel) in 'soft loans' from the government support to help hotels that have been affected by the recent instability in Thailand.

Andew alo wrote "Thai Newspapers filled with positive news now - tax breaks for foreign companies setting up head quarters here, K.Apichatpong and his 'Golden Palm' at Cannes - hard to believe that this time last week could not find a positive story for love nor money. "

Looks like that "Amazing Thailand" wll find back her charm and grace SOON!!!

Bangkok, the City of Angels or "Krungthep" [กรุงเทพ] in Thai, is the hub for most of the commercial and economical activities of the Kingdom. Bangkok City is very famous and appreciated by visitors for its versatility and multiple points of interests. In the past 20 years, Bangkok has seen a huge development of city Spas and Wellness centers, in addition to the long established Thai massage centers, and with more and more international top Spas in Bangkok and growing great numbers of Thai Spa goers, Thai Government is aming to make Bangkok the "SPA Capital of Asia" in 2011.


For Spa Lay, Thailand is definitely a Land of Smile, Spa and Spirit; hoping that the people in this City of Angels will soon greet the global guests with their most charming "Wai" gesture and smiles!!
