The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) has launched a campaign to promote tourism in the low season, or the green season, by offering discounts at major department stores and cheap plane tickets of Thai AirAsia.

TAT Deputy Governor Wilaiwan Thawitsi said the agency has invited foreign tourists, especially those from Vietnam , to shop at leading department stores in Thailand and enjoy discounts from many brand names.

The low-cost airline Thai AirAsia has also joined in the TAT’s green season campaign by offering cheap tickets to Thailand from Ho Chi Minh and Hanoi for Vietnamese tourists, Wilaiwan said.

The TAT and Thai AirAsia organised the event “Thailand Shopping Paradise with AirAsia” at Aeon Mall in Ho Chi Minh from 26-27 July 2014. The event targeted the Vietnamese tourists who had high purchasing power and liked traveling abroad.-VNA
