TAT Pushed the Workation Trend and Continues with the Workation Paradise Throughout ThailandThe Ministry of Tourism and Sports by Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) turned a new page of tourism by presenting a new style of tourism experience that suits the new normal age through a project named “Workation Paradise Throughout Thailand”, in order to encourage working & outing from anywhere.

Together, we will open to a new experience, create inspiration, and fulfill happiness by traveling.

The Workation Paradise Throughout Thailand Project builds on a workation style of tourism based on the new normal tourism. It is the answer to tourism during the covid-19 situation that encourages tourists in Thailand to go on a trip on weekdays. It helps stimulate Thailand tourism market and encourages tourism entrepreneurs to adapt and improve their businesses, especially the accommodation businesses that will step into a new dimension of service; in order to meet nowadays’ demand of working and outing at the same time. This presentation of products and services will increase the opportunity to generate income in the tourism industry and improve Thailand tourism businesses to sustainably move forward, by cooperating with allies in the tourism industry to create various packages that best suit working and outing freely. The packages are available through an online channel on the website www.tourismthailand.org/workationthailand to conveniently access the products and services.

The packages are divided into 4 types as follow:

  1. Resort & Hotel Special Deal (weekdays accommodation and meeting place)
