Bangkok, 29 May 2019 – The Amazing Thai Taste Festival 2019 is going green this year by asking participants to bring their own food and drink containers to enjoy discounts from  all participating stalls between 7 to 9 June from 11.00 to 20.00 Hrs. at Siam Square, Bangkok.

Health conscious foodies will also appreciate the event’s Organic Food zone. It features ready-made organic meals and cooking workshops conducted by well-known organic farms and communities as the event shifts its focus towards sustainability.

Mrs. Sujitra Jongchansitto, TAT Deputy Governor for Tourism Products and Business, said TAT continues to showcase Thai gastronomy and the many diverse tourism experiences connected with it to encourage travelling foodies to sample the original cuisine in its province of origin.

“TAT continues to emphasis gastronomy tourism and culinary tours as part of its key tourism products for both local and international tourist markets. It helps stimulate tourist spending as well as to spread income to farmers and food business entrepreneurs, and in the process help to stimulate local economies,”

Mrs. Sujitra, added.

This year’s theme, Thailand Food Paradise’, will showcase 120 delicacies from up and down the Kingdom in seven key zones.

There are four zones dedicated to famous and unique restaurants, as well as street food stalls that are especially well-known among Thais. These include Trendy Food, Michelin Guide, Street Food and Local Food zones. Most are so popular that they will have foodies queue up to sample the many delicacies on offer.

Some of the restaurants and food stalls present at the Festival include Jok’s Kitchen (aka Jok Toh Diew or Jok’s One Table) from Bangkok’s Yaowarat, 1-star Michelin Methavalai Sorndaeng, Pa Tong Go Saveoy (Chinatown), Chookiat Congee (famous for its foie gras congee), Charoen’s Betong Chicken Rice, and Hat Yai’s Go Auan.

There is also a dedicated Cooking Class zone offering workshops conducted with celebrities, including ones on Thai-style tea with milk, ice cream and the Luk Chup Thai dessert.

Bangkok, 2 December, 2021 – The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) is pleased to report that Thailand features as the main location in the Japanese reality TV show ‘The Bachelor Japan Season 4’, of which the first episode aired on 25 November, 2021.

In cooperation with the TAT Tokyo Office, a film crew from Amazon Prime Japan and YD Creation Japan comprising 65 actors, production staff, technicians and others travelled to Thailand to shoot for the show in the spectacular Southern provinces of Phuket, Phang-Nga, and Krabi between April and June 2021.

A total of six out of the 10 60-minute episodes of ‘The Bachelor Japan Season 4’ were filmed in Thailand.

 Aside from the valuable promotional exposure the destination will receive in Japan, a key source market for visitors from the Asian region, the foreign production also generated much-needed income and employment opportunities in the local tourism and film-related sectors of the three chosen locations.

Phuket, Phang-Nga’ and Krabi were among the first destinations in Thailand to reopen to tourism under the Sandbox programme, and the TAT Tokyo Office has capitalised on the interest of foreign filmmaking to promote the world-class tourist appeal and public health safety standards of these destinations.

Mr. Yuthasak Supasorn, TAT Governor, said “Popular TV shows like ‘The Bachelor’ are an effective way to deliver promotional messages directly to international markets, in this case Japan, which is among the 63 countries and territories from which fully vaccinated visitors can enter Thailand through the Exemption from Quarantine (TEST & GO) programme. With Thailand featuring so significantly in ‘The Bachelor Japan Season 4’, this helps us to promote travel to Thailand now that entry rules are being relaxed and tourists are once again welcomed.”

Fully vaccinated visitors from every country around the world can also visit Thailand via the Living in the “Blue Zone” Sandbox destinations programme. Meanwhile, partially or unvaccinated visitors are also much welcomed via the Happy Quarantine programme. However, to prevent and control the spread of the new Omicron COVID-19 variant, Thailand currently imposes travel restrictions on arrivals from Africa.
