Pattaya Grand Sale underway

Friday, 26 July 2013 From Issue Vol. XXI No. 30 By  Warunya Thongrod

The Pattaya Grand Sale is underway for another year and city officials are hoping the 10-week campaign provides a substantive boost to low season tourism revenues.

Top area government officials and tourism industry executives hailed the start of the campaign July 17 at Central Festival Pattaya Beach. They said the 2013 “Tour All Day, Discount Entire City” campaign offers the biggest discounts yet, up to 70 percent off at area hotels, golf courses and retailers.

“The discounts and benefits tourist will receive are quite special,” said Mayor Itthiphol Kunplome. “Plus, access to promotional officers and information is much easier this year, thanks to sponsors Visa International and Advanced Info Services.”

The mayor said the sale, now in its fifth year, gained new support from area spas, hotels, restaurants, and golf courses. The sale runs through Sept. 30.

Sale Director Prayuth Tamthum said 74 hotels, 20 spas, 10 shopping centers, seven golf courses and 15 tourist attractions are participating this year. Tourists simply need to show their Pattaya Grand Sale 2013 card to receive discounts. The cards can be obtained online at, the Tourism Authority of Thailand’s Pattaya office, Central Festival, participating hotels and TAT offices and shopping malls in Bangkok.

    Need to discount the flights instead of these meaningless "Sales".

    we all know that it will not work, again! you will go to a hotel or golf course and you will be told, what discount? these child like campaigns are amusing! Clean up your town and people will come with out the need for discounts. is it possible that the mayor could grasp that idea?

    This sale is a fake. In a real sale one can get cash discounts without any conditions. Why should I need to register and provide all sorts of personal information which can be used for advertising purposes. It seems one cannot pay for discounted items by cash, to the benefit of the card companies. It is not worth the effort to participate.
