The Pattaya Grand Sale is underway for its sixth year and city officials are hoping the summertime campaign provides a substantive boost to low season tourism revenues.
Mayor Itthiphol Kunplome, Jaran Anmee, director of Tourism Investment for the Tourism Authority of Thailand, Sombun Khroptheenont, manager of Visa International (Thailand), and Sanphet Suphabuansathien, president of Thai Hotels Association Eastern Region, hailed the start of the campaign June 20 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.
Local luminaries kick off this year’s Pattaya Grand Sale.
The promotion runs through Sept. 30.
