Thailand Tourism Festival

Thailand Tourism Festival 2019

It was amazing to be a part of the opening ceremony of Thailand Tourism Festival (TTF) held at Lumphini Park in Bangkok from 23th – 27th January, 2019. It was attended by many Thai and foreign visitors. Admission to Thailand Tourism Festival 2019 is free. If you are coming by MTR, then MRT Lumphini Station is the closest.

Southern Zone – presenting new perspectives of the South that boldly goes beyond the beaches and islands including the secondary cities; such as, Surat Thani and Phatthalung, the hidden gems in major cities like Phuket’s Peranakan and arts in the three southernmost provinces.

Northeastern (Isan) Zone – brings Thailand’s more vibrant cuisine to life. Food is one major inspiration for travelling to this region, linking it with traditional festivals and cultural values while promoting its three main tourism clusters: North Isan, Central Isan and South Isan.

Eastern Zone – presenting new perspectives of the East under a ‘more fun’ concept through replicas of landmarks most synonymous with the region in combination with three dedicated corners for 3D photography backdrops reflecting the region’s identity.

Perhaps most importantly, there is also a ‘Reduce-Reuse-Recycle’ waste initiative zone to help raise awareness and promote responsible sustainable tourism through various activities, games and more.
