Many visitors are reluctant to travel and some even cancel their reservations when they heard the news, however life carries on pretty normal in Bangkok and Thailand and we want to help carry this message to the rest of the world.
Thailand (PRWEB) September 20, 2008
AsiaTiv, a leading online hotel reservation portal, has joined hands with hotel chains in Thailand to actively promote tourism despite the country's political unrest.
The current political issue in Thailand is having a negative effect on tourism as a whole even though the protests are limited to an area in Bangkok. Most hotels and tour operators are running day-to-day business as usual however reports have shown that there are fewer businesses for them. According to an announcement from Thai Hotels Association, 20 percent of the room reservations have been canceled after the government declared state of emergency in Bangkok, the capital city of Thailand.
Dror Meytal comments, "Many visitors are reluctant to travel and some even cancel their reservations when they heard the news, however life carries on pretty normal in Bangkok and Thailand and we want to help carry this message to the rest of the world."
AsiaTiv and leading hotel chains in Thailand have joined hands to help ease off this situation by offering special discounts and promotions on room rates for popular tourist destinations in Bangkok, Chiang Mai, Hua hin, Krabi, Pattaya and Phuket.
Mr. Dror adds, "The effect may not be as bad as it looks in terms of volume as September is usually a low season for Thailand. However, we want to get back to the same level of business as soon as the situation is resolved by offering special deals and promotions on all bookings for October and November. "
Dror further comments, "We will keep an eye to the situation and advise of any changes so travelers can adjust their plans accordingly."
