TAT floats ‘ghost tourism’ in soft power push
One of the most well-known Thai spirit stories to appear on screen recently is Nang Nak, which was released in 1999.

The tourism authority of Thailand ( TAT ) recommends that the country promote “ghost tourism” for foreign visitors seeking horror-themed sites, a move that could increase” soft power” in Thailand.

Thai souls are soft power resources and movie about them have helped spread Thailand’s traditions around the world, said Siripakorn Cheawsamoot, assistant Po government for Europe, Africa, the Middle East and the United States.

He said Spanish visitors were interested in exploring secluded locations with amazing stories after meeting the Colonial embassy to Thailand.

Although there are many possible tourist destinations in the country, the Po has not publicly promoted this aspect of tourism.

Thailand’s Scar government, Thapanee Kiatphaibool, stated on Saturday that the campaign of Thailand’s soft energy has been a success as numerous international film and television production companies have been looking to work there recently.

The second season of the popular HBO TV set White Lotus, which is currently being shot in Bangkok, Phuket, and Koh Samui, and the Hollywood movie Jurassic World 4, which are both scheduled to premiere next year in Krabi and Trang, were cited by Ms. Thapanee.

The first, she said, is expected to generate over 650 million baht in income during the one- quarter filming time.

In another growth, the TAT announced that it is working with French-based Carrefour to introduce a Thailand hospitality deal during the 2024 Olympic Games, which are scheduled for July 22 through August 11 in France.

The strategy aims to draw attention to French people who might be trying to evade the arrival of foreign visitors to Thailand during the” Olympic Getaway” phrase.

According to Mr. Siripakorn, about 2, 000 tour deals are currently being offered to European tourists. The company is also working with airlines to facilitate direct flights from Paris and transport flights from different airports in the nation.
