TAT to invite Blackpink’s Lisa to Phuket’s Countdown

TAT to invite Blackpink’s Lisa to Phuket’s Countdown

BANGKOK: The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) aims to invite world-renowned artists such as Thai-born K-pop singer Lalisa ‘Lisa’ Manoban of Blackpink fame and Italian opera singer Andrea Bocelli to perform at Phuket’s New Year countdown celebration event this year.

To mark the country’s grand reopening, TAT Governor Yuthasak Supasorn said this plan is still pending and requires further consideration as the project needs additional budget approval from the government and partial support from the private sector.

He said the move is hoped to promote the province as a world-class destination, reports state news agency NNT.

Mr Yuthasak pointed out that an appearance by world-renowned artists could draw tourists from around the world to Phuket, especially Blackpink fans and admirers, so-called ‘Blinks’.

Mr Yuthasak said Phuket might be the destination for the countdown event as the government has already created a plan to establish the Andaman island as a “World Class Destination”, which was approved by the Centre for Economic Situation Administration (CESA) earlier this month, said the report.

Seems TAT has a lot of money in her coffers to pay for event set up and for a artist and a Italian opera singer. Well, it is another attempt to get Phuket seen as a 'World Class Destination'.  Something Phuket never will become. It has infra structural no World Class level as no class investment takes place on Phuket. Most tourists money gets sucked away from Phuket. It disappears.

So sick of this Poster Child For Conceited Vanity all over my news feed. TAT, is it really a good idea to have a concert drawing huge crowds, FFS?

555 more tat from TAT! I thought we were already a 'world class' destination.How much would an appearance cost even if she deigned to visit- they really do grasp at straws.
