Konstantin Kinel, Marketing Manager, Moscow Office of the Tourism Authority of Thailand
- The Tourism Authority of Thailand participates in this international tourism exhibition in Baku for the ninth time. As is tradition, representatives of travel agencies and hotels from Thailand also offer their services as part of our national stand. This time you can see representatives of the hotel Mai Khao from Phuket Island.
We arrived here with a specific task to offer new travel destinations, tourism products and programs in order to increase the number of tourists to Thailand. First of all, it is health tourism, since Thailand is famous for its spa complexes, programmes for rejuvenation and adjustment of excess weight, etc., which may be of interest to Azerbaijani tourists.
According to the latest data, Thailand visits about 2.5 thousand citizens of Azerbaijan per year. Mostly Azerbaijanis prefer trips to Phuket Island, the city of Pattaya, partly to Samui Island and Bangkok. We would like to expand the geography of visits of tourists from Azerbaijan, informing them about new places for recreation. Azerbaijanis prefer to travel with families with children, mainly in January and March.
We will be happy to see both market professionals wishing to establish business contacts with us and potential tourists seeking to learn more about our country.
