BMA makes travel calendar to attract tourists to Bangkok


BANGKOK, 7 December 2014  – The Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) and the Ministry of Tourism and Sports have launched a campaign to motivate travelers to travel Bangkok longer after statistics showed that a number of travelers in the capital city was declining.

Deputy Governor of Bangkok Amonkit Chawengkun said the campaign had the goal to make travelers spend more than 3-4 days in Bangkok. The BMTA and the ministry were working together in creating a travel calendar so that travelers learned about tourism activities in Bangkok in each month. There were tour packages grouped by the types of tourism activities with highlights such as cultural performances and street food which was Bangkok’s outstanding characteristic, said the deputy governor.

Mr Amonkit added that the BMA would continue to make the travel calendar every year and organize sport activities to attract tourists
