The Tourism Authority of Thailand and 9 Japanese Travel Agencies Launch a New Campaign “Now is the Time to Travel to Thailand – Inviting You to a New Journey”
(information updated)
The pandemic has restricted travel worldwide and has restricted many foreign tourists from traveling to Thailand. However, immigration restrictions are currently being relaxed around the world. Tourism in Thailand is also booming. Let's make 2022-2023 "Visit Thailand Year"!

The Tourism Authority of Thailand(TAT) has been implementing a tourism campaign called "Amazing Thailand, Amazing New Chapters" to boost Thailand's tourism industry after the pandemic. In cooperation with HIS, JALPAK, JTB, NOE, Tobu Top Tours, AirTrip, and Nippon Travel Agency, they will carry out the Thailand travel campaign "Now is the Time to Travel to Thailand – Inviting You to a New Journey".

Due to the pandemic, the demand for travel from Japan to Thailand has dropped sharply, but the relaxation of immigration restrictions between the two countries has led to an increase in demand for travel to Thailand. Through this campaign, TAT aims to quickly recover the decreased demand for travel to Thailand.

You can apply for air tickets, hotels, package tours, etc. related to this campaign from the special 10 web sites of the 9 companies. Of course, non-Japanese people living in Japan can also use it, so please inquire at each travel agency.
