Hong Kong agents push Thailand

WITH the relaxation of Hong Kong's outbound travel alert on Thailand last week, agents are pushing hot offers to regain tourist traffic to the kingdom by mid-June.

Wing On Travel launched its We Love Thailand campaign to rebuild consumer confidence in the destination. Offers include a five-day group tour to Bangkok and Pattaya, departing June 15, from HK$899 (US$115). Another of its series package provides two extra roomnights free and complimentary room upgrades, Thai massages and shopping discounts.

Miramar is aggressively promoting a group tour, also priced at HK$899, departing June 18.

William Leung, managing director of FIT specialist, Wincastle Travel (HK), believed demand for group tours to Thailand may take a while to rebound as Hongkongers were sensitive to political instability. "Sophisticated FITs have, however, continued to travel to Thailand during the troubled period as they know the country well and could avoid dangerous spots."

Leung noted too that flight capacity to Thailand had not fully returned to pre-crisis levels. "China Airlines trimmed their daily flights to four weekly flights, although Hong Kong Airlines has reentered the market with daily charter flights from June 11."

China Airlines will only resume its daily service to Bangkok in September.
