Thai credit card merchants and others have already kicked off a campaign of 'buy one get one free' room nights and similar promotions. The domestic tourism industry to trying to get Thais to travel again, but what with the recent big exodus from Bangkok during the floods, and the costs people have in repairing cars and homes, its going to be the foreigners who will be propping up the industry in the short term as many locals now don't have the time or money for more travel.

Dito for overseas markets just now also...A quick fix Arthur Daley promo' scenario is also questionable but with the flood disaster and red shirt standoff last year ..what other options can a national tourism body do?It has to try and do something regardless of all the negativity that's occurred recently...very hard out there in the industry just now and every little helps!
