Thailand has launched a global recovery drive to attract travellers after the recent floods
The Tourism Authority of Thailand has started a global drive called 'Beautiful Thailand' to attract travellers and make them understand that the country is welcoming tourism after the recent flood phenomenon.
Certain provinces in the central region were highly affected by the natural disaster, while other areas across Thailand suffered comparatively less impact.
Various tourist hotspots such as Chiang Mai and Sukothai in the north, Phuket and Krabi in the south, Central Bangkok and Suvarnabhumi Airport remained unaffected.
The World Heritage Site in Ayutthaya, the most renowned travel attraction to be inundated by flood waters, is currently undergoing restoration.
The site is fully accessible and has already seen an increase in the number of foreign visitors.
Governor Suraphon Svetasreni said: "For the past several months, the TAT has been reaching out to media worldwide and tour operators to give them an accurate picture of the situation in Thailand."
Despite the campaign, holidaymakers are urged to protect themselves against disruption by taking out a
travel insurance policy.
