Tourism Authority of Thailand launched its second edition of the Wedding book “Weddings & Celebrations in Thailand” at a gala evening held at The Leela Palace Hotel on the 15th January. The first edition “Fall in love in India & get married in Thailand” was so popular and extremely successful that 2nd edition with more information has been produced. The book showcases the enormous range of facilities and services that Thailand has for hosting Indian weddings. We are very pleased to circulate this informative book among our valuable partners: wedding planners, wedding organizers, media and to couples and their families, says Ms. Runjuan Tongrut, Director TAT New Delhi Office.
Thailand has firmly become established as a perfect venue for Indian weddings. In the year 2012, over hundred couples from India celebrated their weddings in Thailand. The popular destinations for Indian weddings are Bangkok, Hua Hin, Phuket, Khao Lak, Pattaya, Kanchanaburi and Chiang Mai.
In a 2011 survey, Indians voted Thailand as “The World’s Best Wedding destination” survey done by Travel & Leisure magazine. And in Nov 2012 Thailand also received the “Best Wedding Destination” Award at the 8th Annual International Awards 2012 organized by Hospitality India and Explore the World. This resounding vote of confidence is sure to encourage more couples to plan their weddings in Thailand in the coming years. Also helping grow this market segment is the tireless effort in providing information and the ‘can do’ mindset of the Thai Hospitality industry.
Thailand was the first NTO in India to promote the country as an ideal dream-wedding destination. The trend started about 10 years ago and it continues to grow very strongly.
