Greetings from Chiangmai
Thailand Business Tourism Standard 2009-2011
Thai Airways International (TG) moves all its Domestic flights to Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi Airport
At this time, some the Low Cost Carries (Nok Air & One2Go) are still continuing to use Bangkok’s Don Muang Airport. Please do check your CRS systems if you have Clients flight records - booked to fly in or out of Bangkok’s Don Muang Airport (DMK) as to their re-scheduled flights from Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi Airport.
As most of you know, we generally do not send out specific Program Offers – However, with the current Special Rates & Promotions being offered to us by the Hotels – We felt it would be a shame for your Clients to miss out on these – if they happen to be in our Region…. So if you missed this or want further information – just let us know and we will be happy send you details.
This is one of Thailand’s Major Festivals - Although this celebration of the Traditional Thai New Year is nationwide, the festivities are at their highest and most enthusiastic in Chiangmai. The Principal attraction is the customary good luck sprinkling of water on each other - which gets somewhat out of hand !! - (Imagine Chicago in a heat wave then someone opens all the Fire Hydrants combined with a mini Mardi Gras and you begin to get the idea !!).
If you take the above into consideration – then you will have Fun…
…And apart from all that – this year (2009) the Thai New Year Festival of Songkran also falls over the same weekend as Easter...So essentially everything here will be closed from 10-16 April. !!So if you do have anything urgent – please do try to contact us before 9 April. … and although we will be monitoring e.mails during the Festival Period– please excuse any delays in responses from here during this period. !!
That's it for now. Many Thanks and Take Care
