TAT Encourages Public to Visit Specific Communities Around the Country

The Tourist Authority of Thailand (TAT) has launched a new 'We Love Local' campaign to enocurage tourists to visit specific and out of the beaten track communities around the country.

The campaign is aimed at promoting tourism in rarely visited communities which manage to preserve their authenticity, traditional way of living, and customs. Following the global tourist trend of getting closer to the local life, TAT invites tourists to consider visiting some of the 50 communities which have been chosen to be a part of the campaign based on their unique  characteristics, identities and activities they are able to offer to their guests.

All the communities are divided into 10 categories to make it easier for visitors to make their choice. The following categories are currently on the list: the King’s Wisdom, GI (Geographical Indications) Products, Culture, Highlanders, Agro-tourism, Thai Fabrics, Gastronomy, Eco-adventures, Homestays, and School and Family Outings. For example, if it is the local culture you are after, head to Lampang, Sukhothai, Trat, Uthai Thani or Ubon Ratchathani. Foodies will appreciate a trip to Nakhon Si Thammarat, Nan, Chiang Rai, Trat or Lopburi. Staying with locals is a highly rewarding experience especially in Phang Nga.

The main goal of the campaign is to boost local ecomonies and help communities generate THB1 million of revenue before the end of the year.
