TAT launched ‘Women’s Journey Thailand’ to add even more amazing opportunities for lady tourists to the kingdom.
August is a great month for all female travelers to Thailand. The reason? The entire month has been earmarked by the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) for its newest campaign, dubbed as “Women’s Journey Thailand.”
The campaign, which starts Aug. 1, aims to stimulate further tourism for this year and the next. Specifically aimed at women travelers, the campaign promises fun and enjoyment for the fairer sex more than the usual, with a range of activities, special offers, and privileges, as well as products and services geared to meet their holiday needs.
“The launch of the “Women’s Journey Thailand” campaign throughout August is not only very timely, as this is the month that we celebrate the birthday of Her Majesty Queen Sirikit,” says Yuthasak Supasorn, TAT governor. “It also reflects Thailand’s increasing popularity among female travelers, whether alone or in groups. We believe this campaign will further stimulate the market – as women travelers are quality tourists with high purchasing power.”
