Thailand has been voted one of the top-3 popular destinations in Asia and South-Pacific for American honeymooners, according to National News Bureau of Thailand (NNT).

The information was released by the Bridal Guide magazine, a leading US publication on wedding and honeymoon.

NNT quoted the Deputy Governor of Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT), Juthaporn Rerngronasa, as saying that such a recognition will greatly benefit Thailand 's tourism industry, with many more American travellers likely to visit the country in the future.

The TAT offices in New York and Los Angeles will continue to execute the aggressive market penetration plan in the US , with various trade shows and road shows.

TAT also plans to invite representatives from travel agencies in the US and members of the press to visit Thailand so that they can have better ideas on why the Land of Smiles should make a perfect destination for American travellers./.
