The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) has launched dedicated and exclusive social media pages on Facebook and Instagram that will communicate with the international travellers of Bangladesh primarily in Bengali as well as in English.
With the establishment of this dedicated social media space for the Bangladeshi audience keeping an eye for their need, taste, inquiries and requirements, the TAT is trying to connect closely with the outbound travel and tourism industry of the country, read a press release on Saturday.
This move comes at a time when the TAT, through its various offices, is trying to stay well-connected with travel trade partners and tourists in Bangladesh and providing them regularly with all necessary updates.
Vachirachai Sirisumpan, director of the Tourism Authority of Thailand (New Delhi) in charge of Bangladesh, Nepal, Bhutan and North and East India, said, "Bangladesh is regarded as one of the high potential markets to Thailand from South Asia region. The TAT has seen a good growth of tourist arrivals to Thailand, and would, therefore, like to establish a communication channel exclusively for Bangladesh."
"The TAT New Delhi Office that is responsible for Bangladesh will be working more in the market with our travel trade partners and our Royal Thai Embassy in Bangladesh. I do hope to see sustained growth of the market in the future," he added.
Bangladesh is one of the important source markets for the TAT as other than families visiting Thailand for holidaying, a good number of medical tourists also visit top-quality health facilities in Thailand. There is a significant count of business travellers also who regularly go to Thailand for various business purposes.
"Besides, Thailand offers excellent Halal food options everywhere which is a necessity for most of the Bangladeshi travelers and comfortable hospitality facilities that they may want," it added.
