Mr. Ahman Mad-Adam, Director of TAT, Kuala Lumpur office said: “Thai food is more than a cuisine, it is a lifelong passion. It is a love affair with deep roots in the country’s culture and most importantly, in the family. We believe it is the same in Malaysia, where people love to eat and the food bond people together. Many Malaysian tourists travel to Thailand with the objective to taste Thai food. This year we have the new 2019 edition of MICHELIN Guide, which reaches to Phuket and Phang-nga. This proves that Thailand has a wide variety of food for everyone, from MICHELIN Star restaurants, street food, HALAL food to fine-dining and many more.
We had 4 million visitors from Malaysia in 2018, which was the highest in TAT-KL’s record. We are grateful for all the support from Malaysians. In 2019, we are working hard to promote Thailand in every possible way and to reach out to broader audience groups, such as the young travelers or the millennial, food lovers, high-end travelers, health enthusiasts, sport lovers, honeymoon couples and others.”
There are two new attractions in Thailand this year, which are Chiang Rai-Boon Rawd Farm and Prachuap Khiri Khan-Vana Nava Hua Hin Water Park. Make sure you include them in your travel itinerary!
