Capitalizing on India’s economic boom in the country’s secondary cities, the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) is undertaking a tourism roadshow to secondary cities of southern India, covering Coimbatore, Mangalore, and Pune between January 9th-14th, 2013.

The roadshow to the three emerging cities, all of which have been given international gateway status by the Indian government, is part of the TAT strategy to tap the rich potential of India’s populous secondary cities. This is in addition to the ongoing marketing activities in the primary four Indian megapolis cities of Mumbai, New Delhi, Kolkata, and Chennai.
