As of the 14th of February, 17 happy British couples have taken advantage of this amazing offer and have been whisked through immigration, VIP style! The most popular destinations for couples to visit this month have been Bangkok, Koh Samui, Chiang Mai, Phuket and Koh Tao. Two lucky couples were staying for 30 days and had a fantastic itinerary planned to see as much of the country as possible. Most couples had a delightful 14 day stay planned.
Roses are red, violets are blue, seek romance in Thailand, we’ve got special offers for two!
In the spirit of Valentine’s Day the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT), Airport Authority of Thailand (AOT) and Immigration Bureau have launched a special promotion to interest more couples to travel to Thailand in February 2013. The campaign is aimed at increasing awareness of Thailand as a romantic destination and promoting value for money as a couple’s holiday.
Throughout February all couples who visit Thailand* will receive a ‘Sukjai’** free gift from Tourism Thailand and be given Premium Lane fast track immigration privileges so that their romantic holiday can start even sooner!
Skip the passport queues and before you can say “Sawasdee”*** you could be sipping cocktails at one of Bangkok’s sky bars watching the sunset over the city.
Two dedicated desks have been set-up to welcome couples arriving to Thailand. There is one at the East Concord (which receives passengers from Gates A, B, and C) and one at the West Concord (which receives passengers from Gates E, F, and G).
The desks are open from 05.00 to 21.00, 7 days a week throughout the month of February 2013.
Couples should make themselves known to TAT staff and register for these amazing, complimentary, benefits. They can then choose whether to have their photograph taken and will be given a free gift and a special sticker that will allow them Premium Lane fast track immigration access.
Thailand Reunited: TAT UK will then contact the British couples who registered with the romantic Thailand campaign to ask them to share their holiday memories (a proposal perhaps?!) on their Facebook app, Thailand Reunited to help encourage and inspire more first timers to travel to Thailand.
