Thailand Grooving To The Eight Events Organized By The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT)
Thailand Grooving To The Eight Events Organized By The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT)

A lot have been said and done about the evils of human minds and the lust for power affecting the land in an adverse way. History is full of such incidents of human blunder where a set of mis-guided hooligans take on the attack to the country they live in and prosper. The same had happened to the beautiful nation of Thailand that under went a stressful time in the political front and took major blows on the national image due to a series of unfortunate events. Going by official data, the tourism industry in Thailand counts 10% in the nation's GDP and this fragile sector took the hammering on the head for issues like the anti-government protests, debt crisis, swine flu, bird flu and the global financial crumble. Even though situations are under control today, the troubled tourism industry is yet to stand on its own. To facilitate it, the country has roped in to a series of festivals and celebrations to give the much needed push to the ailing sector. The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) has launched a continuous chain of events under the title- 'Smile@Siam'. Conceptualized under the traditional image of Thailand as 'The Land of Smiles', this campaign has a clear and direct objective of reviving the travel opportunities in the country that is passing through a rough patch. Targeting both the national and global travellers, the focus of these series of events is to re-establish the image of Thailand as a tourist friendly destination with large variety of cultural bequests. The gala begins on August 14, 2010 and it will come to an end on September 26, 2010 after completing a series of eight related events. Coming to the operational aspect of 'Smile@Siam', The Tourism Authority of Thailand is advocating to put a lighter price tag on the travel plans and packages with lower charges for accommodation and sight seeing. This is going to be strictly followed in the interiors and the island locations thereby encouraging the travellers to flock to these parts. Apart form the lower prices, the authorities have planned to kick off a shopping bonanza in the capital with a wide variety of traditional items on a cut down price range. Any shopping freak will love to be in Thailand strolling down the lanes of Siam Square Soi 3 and Siam Paragon Shopping Complex. It is not only the sight seeing or shopping, the cultural side of Thailand will also come to the fore in a larger platform with a bevy of cultural performances in the pipeline. Leading destinations like Udon Thani, Udon Thani, Suphan Buri are set to host many engaging and attracting tourism festivals in between late August to late September this year. Here goes the eight festivals that are on the cards to serve a larger goal for Thailand tourism:

  • 1st Smile in the Park
  • International Taste 2010 Amazing Thailand
  • Smile@Khao San Road
  • 2nd Smile in the Park
  • Thai Tourism Festival @Udon Thani
  • Thai Tourism Festival @Surat Thani
  • Thai Tourism Festival @Suphan Buri

The content of these celebrations are designed with a clear purpose thereby offering the tourists a chance of a life time to witness the real essence of the land, the heritage and the people. Organize your travel plans for the next vacations and make sure you consider Thailand in context with the festivals that are going to set the mood on a joyous note.
