TAT hosts Amazing Thailand “ASEAN Media Fam Trip  from Bangkok to Siem Riep” on September 6 -11, 2013

Bangkok – September 5, 2013: A total of 21 prominent online foreign media from East and South Asia – Japan, China, Taiwan, India, and Thailand – have been invited to join the Amazing Thailand “ASEAN Media Fam Trip from Bangkok to Siem Reap” during September 6-11, 2013. The international media joining will be top bloggers and online journalists from Thailand’s main tourist markets in Asia. The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) is conducting this media trip to promote land and air connectivity with neighbouring countries such as Cambodia in advance of Thailand’s entry into the ASEAN Economic Community (AEC) in 2015.

Mr.Suraphon Svetasreni, TAT Governor, said “TAT is proud to present this eastern route from Bangkok to Siem Reap via the diverse attractions of Nakhon Nayok, Prachin Buri, and Sa Kaeo.  We feel there are many unseen things in those provinces that tourists can enjoy before or after a cross-border visit of the splendors of Angkor Wat in Siem Reap.  We want to show that this route is not only a convenient passage to the Greater Mekong Subregion, but is also a fabulously unique tourist region in itself.

The trip will take the media to explore another side of Bangkok at Taling Chan Floating Market then change gears to the busy and world-renowned Chatuchak Weekend Market.

On the second day, the tour moves out from Bangkok to Nakhon Nayok Province, the scenic Khun Dan Prakarnchon Dam, the largest and longest roller compacted concrete dam in the world. Not far from the reservoir, the group will pay a visit to the Bhumirak Dhamachart Project, which is a multimedia museum displaying His Majesty’s concrete ideas and theories for the development of agriculture.

Next day, the group will visit a historical building as well as relax with a traditional Thai massage at the Chao Phraya Abhaibhubate Hospital. After that, moving on to Ban Dong Krathong Yam, the tour will explore the local culture of the Thai Puan people. Then, one last stop before crossing to Cambodia is the bustling Rong Kluea border market in Aranyaprathet.

The Cambodian portion of the trip will include visits to the majestic historical sites of

Prasat Ta Phrom, Prasat Bayon and conclude at the World Heritage Site of Angkor Wat.  Mr. Tith Chantha, Director General, Ministry of Tourism of Cambodia, hosts a dinner for the group in Siem Reap on September 10.

Lampang Historical Train and Horse Carriage Festival4

Lying about 600 kilometers north of Bangkok, Lampang is an old province that is well worth a visit. It is the only province in Thailand where horse-drawn carriages are still used as a means of public transport.

The province welcomes all visitors to its “Lampang Historical Train and Horse Carriage Festival,” to be held from 1 to 5 April 2013.

Among the activities during the five-day festival are cultural performances, a light and sound show, a bazaar of local products, a food festival, and an exhibition on the history of train service and horse carriages in Lampang. Visitors will experience an old-style market where participants dress in traditional costumes, and they may go on a city tour in horse-drawn carriages to visit the various attractions.

Lampang is located in the middle of the valley of the Wang River, and the province covers a vast area of forest. One of the natural resources found in this province is white clay, which is used to make high-quality ceramics. The ceramics industry has become an important industry in Lampang, which is noted for its excellent ceramics – souvenirs and other products crafted from ceramics have made a name for this province.

The town of Lampang has a long history dating back to the Hariphunchai Kingdom, which is believed to have been founded in the seventh or early eighth century. During the reign of King Chulalongkorn (Rama V), the first horse carriage was brought from Bangkok for use in Lampang. Horse carriages were also introduced for use as public transport in other northern provinces, such as Chiang Mai, Chiang Rai, Phrae, Nan, and Mae Hong Son, but they have not been used in those provinces for a number of years.

In 1952, an association, called the Horse Carriage in Lampang Province, was established to operate the horse-drawn cart business there. For most Thais, the symbol of Lampang is the horse-drawn carriage.

During the reign of King Chulalongkorn, who ruled the Kingdom from 1868 to 1910, railway transport was introduced into Thailand. The first royal train arrived at the Nakhon Lampang Railway Station in Lampang on 1 April 1916 in the reign of King Vajiravudh (Rama VI). Passengers could ride in comfort from Nakhon Lampang Station to town in one of the many horse carriages available.

For nearly a century, trains and horse carriages have played a vital role as means of transportation in Lampang, for both business and pleasure.

In the past, Lampang was regarded simply as a picturesque town where tourists could make a brief stop on their way to Chiang Mai, the largest city in northern Thailand. The province is now a focal point for elephant conservation in Thailand. It is the location of the Thai Elephant Conservation Center, which has become a major tourist attraction in the North and has helped promote eco-tourism in Thailand.

Thai tourism entrepreneurs are avoiding from being impacted by the European economic slump by placing more emphasis on Asian markets, according to the Tourism Council of Thailand (TCT).

Although the overall number of foreign tourists coming to Thailand has been on the rise this year, TCT Chairman Kongkrit Hiranyakit indicated that the proportion of European visitors was expected to shrink in the fourth quarter with a growth rate of only 5 percent year-on-year, as opposed to the previous target of 10-15 percent. He then urged entrepreneurs to keep a close watch on the expansion of the tourist number next year as well as the strength of Thai tourism.

Amid the current volatility in European economies, the TCT Chairman pointed out that a number of tour operators had decided to shift their interest to Asian markets while many had already set up offices in Asian countries like China, India and South Korea. The move is aimed at avoiding risks from European markets and compensate for the lower number of European customers.

To feature seminars organised in cooperation with ITB Berlin
P Krishna Kumar | New Delhi

The Knowledge Sessions at the second edition of Goa International Travel Mart (GITM) this year will focus on the emerging niche segments in India. The high powered conference programme of the Mart, which will be held at the Grand Hyatt Bambolim from October 21-23, will be bolstered by two seminars organised in cooperation with ITB Berlin, world’s leading travel exhibition organiser. ITB Berlin will be hosting seminars on Responsible Tourism and LGBT Tourism. The other international tie-up of the Mart is Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) coming on board as Wellness Partner. Apart from showcasing Wellness offerings, TAT will also fly down an expert from Thailand to speak on Spa and Wellness in Thailand.

Other sessions are on niche segments like Adventure Tourism and Spa and Wellness Tourism besides important topics like Branding and Reinventing a Destination, Marketing and Innovation in Tourism and the Role of Public-Private-Partnerships in Tourism and Destination Development. An impressive line-up of speakers comprising of Ministers, top government officials, CEO’s, industry experts, association heads etc. is being put together by TravelBiz Monitor and will include names such as Subodh Kant Sahai, Union Minister for Tourism, Government of India; Rika Jean-François, Sales Director for South Asia & Pacific and Commissioner for Corporate Social Responsibility, ITB Berlin; Thomas Bomkes, Managing Director, Diversity Tourism UG based in Munich, Germany; Rajeev Duggal, MD, Kuoni India; Amitabh Kant, CEO, Delhi-Mumbai Industrial Corridor Development Corporation; Ashish Kumar Singh, Principal Secretary to Chief Minister of Maharashtra and former MD of MTDC; Dilip Puri, MD of Starwood Hotels India; P Manoharan, Director-India, Tourism Malaysia; Neelu Singh, COO, ezeego1, etc. GITM is organised and promoted jointly by Department of Tourism, Government of Goa and Goa Tourism Development Corporation (GTDC); Tourism Association of Goa (TAG) and Goa Chamber of Commerce and Industry (GCCI).

Announcing the tie-up with ITB Berlin at a press conference during the PATA Travel Mart which concluded in New Delhi earlier this month, Swapnil Naik, Director, Goa Tourism said that the support from ITB Berlin will help take the Mart to the next level. He added that Goa Tourism wants to build synergies with neighbouring states like Maharashtra and Karnataka on the Western coast to create wholesome tourist circuits.

Melwyn Vaz, who took charge recently as Managing Director of GTDC, said that although Goa has a unique place on the global travel map, there is always scope for improvement and GITM is a major step in that direction. “GITM will bring better and greater opportunities to the travel and tourism trade in Goa. We are confident that GITM 2011 will be bigger and better,” stated Vaz.

Francois said that as the leading travel and tourism exhibition organisers, ITB bestows lot of importance to regional and local travel and tourism fairs. “We look at the destination and the seriousness of the organisers before supporting any of the local fairs. GITM fits in on both the counts,” stated Francois when quizzed about the decision to partner with GITM. She informed that ITB will bring in eminent panelists for both the seminars at GITM. Commenting on the LGBT market, Francois said that it is a niche market and if handled sensibly, can reap rich dividends to destinations and businesses.

Giving a brief preview of the Knowledge Sessions, Sheldon Santwan, Editor and COO, TravelBiz Monitor, said that “two out of the box” seminars by ITB will add value to all the deliberations at this year’s GITM. “There are plans to put together knowledge sessions around new and emerging sales segments and how these segments can be tapped through innovative marketing,” he added.

The theme of the Mart this year is ‘Unearth the Hidden Treasures of Goa’. Goa Tourism will be hosting around 450 buyers this year compared to 130 last year. In terms of the sellers at the exhibition, GITM organisers are expecting around 150 sellers against 80 last year. Leading travel companies like Kuoni, LPTI, TBI, etc. have already signed up as partners for the annual event. Air India will be the official carrier of GITM. Moreover, all the industry associations TAFI, IATO, TAAI, ADTOI, ATOAI, IAAI etc. are supporting the Mart and will be sending delegations to participate in the Mart.
