The year-end Amazing Thailand Grand Sale promotion started on 15 November 2018 and will run through 15 January 2019. It offers extra discounts on existing promotions already available from participating department stores and shops in Bangkok.
The campaign is aimed at boosting tourism revenue from those who especially enjoy shopping while travelling to and from Thailand.
TAT Governor YuthasakSupasorn said, "TAT is working with our strategic partners as well as manufacturers, leading and popular brand merchandisers, shopping malls and department stores, community malls, and credit card companies to offer "Passport Privileges” to arrivals from strategic short-haul markets.
"Of course, tourists from all other major markets also enjoy the usual incredible discounts associated with this latest Amazing Thailand Grand Sale promotion, which is an ideal time before the annual Festive Season holidays start in December.”
TAT is also promoting "sales” of popular products favored by tourists, including handcrafted Thai textiles, cosmetics, home appliances, and top Thai brands. It will also promote and create pop-up ‘shopping events’ at shopping malls and department stores that are popular with tourists.
Brochures, vouchers along with further details about the ‘Passport Privileges’ will be provided for tourists at the airports. A promotional tent card in English and Chinese is presented at the airport’s immigration counters, featuring a QR code for tourists to obtain more information on the privileges.
