PATA Responds to Bangkok Trouble

 

The Pacific Asia Travel Association (PATA) is working with Thailand to put a recovery plan in place once the situation in Bangkok stabilizes.

First and foremost, PATA CEO Greg Duffell wants to "emphasize that travel to Thailand is still safe. The major part of Bangkok remains open and accessible for tourists and business travelers with hotels, shops and tourist sites open for business. The popular tourist resorts such as Phuket, Koh Samui, Krabi and Pattaya are unaffected by the protests in Bangkok city center."

PATA Chairman Hiran Cooray met with Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) Governor Suraphon Svetasreni to discuss moving forward. It was decided at the meeting that PATA HQ and the PATA Chapter in Thailand will work with TAT in the recovery phases.
