Pattaya launches ambitious tourist campaign

Pattaya City Council and tourism-related business in the city are now making all out efforts to woo tourists back to the resort-city in time for this year’s high season, following the most dismal low season ever, with hotel occupancy in June down to 20% of what it was a year previously. Such low figures are essentially due to the combined impacts of the Bangkok airport closures, the Red Shirts’ riots and now swine flu.
At the “Restore Pattaya Tourism” seminar held in the city in the last week of June, delegates were informed about the special tourism stimulus budget of Bt20 million and other elements of a recovery plan for tourism.
