All foreigners and their families residing in Thailand are eligible, the announcement said.

They will to receive a B1,000 discount per night booked at any of over 300 participating hotels in destinations across the Kingdom. The more nights they stay, the higher discount value they receive, the promotion announcement said.

It applies to stays at participating hotels listed with the Thai Hotels Association (THA) and travel on Bangkok Airways, AirAsia and Nok Air.

Expats can chose a hotel they would like to visit from the list of participating hotels, all of which are licensed and certified THA members.

Expats then contact the hotel directly and present their passport when booking as proof of expat status to receive the B1,000 discount on every room night booked. The promotion is valid on stays until Dec 31, the announcement said.

Up to 50% is offered off airfares and packages for all domestic flights and discount coupons per room per night starting at B900 are provided for direct booking with participating hotels and airlines.

“With very limited travel from overseas, Thai hotels need all the support they can get, so there’s never been a better time for expats to help out and enjoy a great value vacation at the same time,” Marisa Sukosol Nunbhakdi, President of the Thai Hotels Association, said. “I am happy that the association can be a part of this campaign.

“In Thailand, the expat market has great potential, so we hope this campaign will encourage more expats to explore Thailand and show support for our hospitality industry,” said Chattan Kunjara Na Ayudhya, TAT deputy Governor for international marketing Asia and South Pacific.

@lLalala, yes, I know that, hehehe. But why they write it? They really think they run out of available rooms during this 'paid extra holiday', ( only for government servants)? Can't believe that. Most of them I know just stay home or move around a day trip or so.

@ Kurt   " I not understand...."   Not really a surprise ! 

LALALA | 19 November 2020 - 14:09:09

Kurt, easy to understand, this is the printed excuse for 'solly no have'...LOL

Kurt | 19 November 2020 - 11:05:09

I not understand that 'limited redemption' and 'first come first serve basis'. As or people have to queue up. Planes and hotels are empty! What limited?
