Bangkok. Launches Family Fun Thailand
Back in Bangkok, I am off to Siam Park City for the launch of ‘Family Fun’, Thailand’s newest tourism promotional campaign targeting families from ASEAN countries, South Asia and South Pacific during the ‘Green Season’. This season is when Thailand’s interior landscape comes to life with lush, verdant views and offers tourists another side to this beautiful country.
In a press statement Mr. Yuthasak Supasorn, TAT Governor said, “Thailand has a wide variety of tourism resources, attractions, activities, infrastructure, hospitality and services that fit for all age groups, so our country actually is a perfect destination for families. This project is therefore initiated with the aim to enhance awareness of Thailand as a family destination and encourage families to visit during the ‘Green Season.”
I can vouch for that, having spent a wonderful, fun-filled, action packed three-days in Phuket. You can read about this here, here, and here. (BTW, there are plenty of other island’s to choose from as well).
Before the launch, I toured this amusement park. It is HUGE! Set in 119 acres, it is considered to be the largest theme and water park in Southeast Asia and has the biggest artificial sea in the world, a spa, several swimming pools, a 7-storey waterslide and many, many more fun games, rides, slides, pools, parks and entertainment for the whole family.
Watch this amazing water bucket drop here.
At 7 pm, the launch begins with much fanfare: dance, live chats, interviews with the celebrity couples who have also enjoyed this amazing Thai hospitality, bloggers, travel agents, well wishers and special invitees like the lovely Ms. Australia who graced the occasion. It was a magical evening!
You can watch the video of the opening act here.
I must conclude this series by saying that Thailand is one of the safest, exciting, colourful and complete destinations for fun and entertainment. Whether it is for a “girl’s weekend” or a “family getaway”, “bachelor parties” or for “adventure seekers”, Thailand will not disappoint.
Don’t limit yourself to the usual shopping sprees and sun, sand, and sea, but explore, trek, hike and go off the beaten path and add to your memories.
While in Bangkok, I stay at the luxurious, cosmopolitan-styled Sukosol Hotel. I am actually surprised not to have heard of this hotel, because it is conveniently located in central Bangkok, opposite the Airport Rail Link (which is super convenient to get to the hotel from the Suvarnabhumi International Airport) and BTS Skytrain Phaya Thai stations and just a short walk to numerous night markets.
Rooms & Suites
The Sukosol has a diverse range of luxurious accommodation; suitable for holiday makers, business people and families. The rooms are large, so very comfortable and well stocked with branded amenities.
The rest of the hotel is more like a small resort in the city.
And you must eat at one of the in-house restaurants that offer a range of culinary delights from Chinese to Japanese, fusion and authentic Thai food. It is so good!
Thanks to #TATSriLanka for inviting me to Phuket and to the launch of Family Fun Thailand. My stay at Sukosol Hotel in Bangkok was complimentary. All opinions are, as always, my own.
