“In the future, the tourism authority is actively working to ensure Thailand remains a top-of-mind destination for travellers from across the world, such as with the ‘Visit Thailand Year 2022-2023: Amazing New Chapters’ campaign,” Mr. Yuthasak stated.

In addition to the campaign, the ‘Write Your New Chapter‘ TVC was released to express the Amazing New Chapters theme and to connect tourists worldwide through a cinematic perspective to show them Thailand has a plethora of holiday alternatives with something for everyone.

The goal is to encourage travellers to discover Thailand and write their chapters, which they can then share with their friends and family to urge them to visit.

Thailand is working toward more sustainable, responsible, and inclusive tourism, per the Thai government’s Bio-Circular-Green (BCG) Economy Model. The kingdom will continue to be promoted as a world-class destination with existing and new tourism experiences awaiting discovery by travellers worldwide.

This will be shown alongside NFT products such as Nature to Keep, Food to Explore, and Thainess to Discover, which are the key highlights of the “Amazing New Chapters” campaign.
