Thailand wins ‘Destination of the Year’ at TTG Asia Travel Awards 2018

Thailand is basking in the glory of another award-filled week after winning the ‘Destination of the Year‘ award at the 29th Annual TTG Travel Awards 2018 held at Centara Grand and Bangkok Convention Centre.

Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) Deputy Governor for Marketing Communications Mr. Tanes Petsuwan said the TAT was delighted to again be recognised by the region’s leading and longest-running travel agent awards.

TTG’s editorial panel singled out the TAT’s ‘Amazing Thailand Go Local‘ initiative as a driving force behind the award.

The campaign included an action-packed schedule of unique Thai local experiences and a marquee of international events during 2018. It specialised in daily lifestyle interactions with Thai local communities around Bangkok and out to the far corners of the Kingdom.

This special honour, which falls under the Outstanding Achievement Awards category, is presented to the region’s most outstanding destination. Thailand has distinguished itself this year by topping the charts in arrivals, its savvy marketing, and its initiatives towards the development and promotion of the travel industry.
