[NEWS/ALERTS] “Amazing Thailand, Amazing Romance” in celebration of the month of love throughout February
The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) has partnered with the Airports of Thailand Public Company Limited (AOT) and Immigration Bureau to launch “Amazing Thailand, Amazing Romance” in celebration of the month of love. Throughout February, the initiative will enable couples traveling together to expedite their arrival in Thailand by giving them the opportunity to use the Immigration Bureau’s “premium lane” when entering Suvarnabhumi Airport in Bangkok.
Couples are encouraged to visit the “Amazing Thailand, Amazing Romance” counters – located at both the East Concord (which receives passengers from Gates A, B, and C) and the West Concord (which receives passengers from Gates E, F, and G) – to register for the “premium lane” and avoid traffic at immigration. Registration only takes a few minutes and requires that one partner provide basic information including name, country of residence, length of stay and e-mail address. The information will be used solely to provide updates to travelers regarding TAT’s upcoming events, promotions and activities.
Located just 15 degrees north of the equator, “Amazing Thailand” is one of Southeast Asia’s premier travel destinations and home to well-known tourist locations including the capital city of Bangkok, Chiang Mai, Phuket, Ko Samui and Pattaya. Known as the “land of smiles,” Thailand features some of the world’s finest luxury hotels and resorts, and offers visitors a rich tapestry of exotic architecture, culture, cuisine, traditions and exciting adventures.

And for beach lovers and island enthusiasts, think no further. Surin is the place.
… feeds, cares and provides medical supplies for rescued Asian elephants today numbering as few as one thousand in the wild. Their habitat is rapidly disappearing, wild herds are fragmented, and conflict between humans and elephants is increasing. Captive elephants aren’t doing much better; they lack government protection, are abused in illegal logging operations and forced breeding programs, and exploited in ultra-commercial tourism.
