The Tourism Authority of Thailand, Malaysia (TAT) unveils its “EAT THAI, VISIT THAILAND 2019” campaign, to mark a collaboration between tourism and restaurants in Malaysia. This is in line with the Amazing Thailand’s “Open to the New Shades” campaign, focusing on five main travel sectors to help international visitors experience the Kingdom from a new perspective. The concept includes: Gastronomy, Arts and Crafts, Thai Culture, Nature, and Thai Way of Life.
This EAT THAI, VISIT THAILAND 2019 campaign, which began on March 20 – April 30, is a collaboration between TAT and all the eight outlets of Mr Tuk Tuk in Malaysia. Mr. Tuk Tuk will be introducing some new dishes and drinks for the occasion. Thai street food is very popular among Malaysians, and Mr. Tuk Tuk offers consumers quality and delicious Thai dishes that are Halal certified. They proved to be delicious and authentically tasty, and there are many such Halal restaurants in Thailand. During this campaign, diners who spend more than RM50 per receipt at any of the eight Mr Tuk Tuk outlets will stand a chance to win one of the 20 prizes which include a FREE trip to Bangkok for two persons plus a 3 days 2 nights hotel stay, five luggage, ten handbags and four Mr. Tuk Tuk dining vouchers.
Mr. Ahman Mad-Adam, Director of TAT, Kuala Lumpur office said: “Thai food is more than a cuisine, it is a lifelong passion. It is a love affair with deep roots in the country’s culture and most importantly, in the family. We believe it is the same in Malaysia, where people love to eat and the food bond people together. Many Malaysian tourists travel to Thailand with the objective to taste Thai food. This year we have the new 2019 edition of MICHELIN Guide, which reaches to Phuket and Phang-nga. This proves that Thailand has a wide variety of food for everyone, from MICHELIN Star restaurants, street food, HALAL food to fine-dining and many more.
We had 4 million visitors from Malaysia in 2018, which was the highest in TAT-KL’s record. We are grateful for all the support from Malaysians. In 2019, we are working hard to promote Thailand in every possible way and to reach out to broader audience groups, such as the young travelers or the millennial, food lovers, high-end travelers, health enthusiasts, sport lovers, honeymoon couples and others.”
