Pattaya business leaders will use social media influencers to spread the word that Pattaya is safe and ready to reopen.

Ekasit Ngampichet, president of the Pattaya Business & Tourism Association, said Jan. 22 that all marketing channels will be used to promote domestic tourism in Pattaya once the government lifts the travel lockdown on Chonburi.



He expects that restrictions will be lifted soon, as Chonburi has reported only a handful of coronavirus cases this week, with no confirmed cases on several days. Rayong on Friday also reported no new cases, indicating that coronavirus outbreaks tied to illegal casinos and a Sriracha beer garden are over.

PBTA President Eakasit Ngampichet said that all marketing channels will be used to promote domestic tourism in Pattaya once the government lifts the travel lockdown on Chonburi.

Ekasit said that, in addition to normal marketing, the city will invite bloggers to come to Pattaya and write about the safety measures in place around the city to prevent new outbreaks, as well as the attractiveness of beaches and local attractions.

The PBTA president said he also is in discussions with the government to offer affordable health insurance to visitors to instill further peace of mind.
