Under the TAT’s “Visit Thailand Year: Amazing New Chapters” scheme, as well as We Travel Together, Wonder Deal, and Secret Code 365, the government has launched campaigns to encourage people to travel during public holidays from now until September.

These initiatives aim to increase domestic tourism in April, which will increase annual tourist spending.

I Lert U App Urged for Tourist Safety During Songkran Festival

Deputy Government Spokesperson Rachada Dhnadirek recommended the I Lert U app for Thai and foreign tourists to download before the festival to ensure their safety.

The app, created by the Tourist Police, offers a constant hotline where users can report problems or request assistance. It taps into the phone’s built-in GPS receiver to pinpoint the user’s location and dispatch help.

Most Southeast Asian languages, as well as Thai, English, Chinese, Russian, Japanese, Korean, French, German, and Arabic, are supported by the I Lert U app.
