As part of Thailand’s 2015 Discover Thainess campaign, the Minister of Tourism and Sports wanted to promote some “hidden gems” throughout Thailand.
Well, one of the first promotions was to get married underwater in Trang but I guess the Minister of Tourism and Sports forgot to promote it or people looked at the Tourism Authority of Thailand website and got the dates wrong.
In what has to be one of the biggest failures ever recorded by the Minister of Tourism and Sports a grand total of 3 foreign couples attended the underwater wedding ceremony.
Now, maybe since the Tourism Authority of Thailand posted on their website that the activities were from 10-12 February things got screwed up since these 3 couples, along with 4 Thai couples, got married under the sea on 13 February. Yes, Friday the 13th.
The Minister of Tourism and Sports needs to understand that she cannot just say that 12 destinations are going to be promoted and think that somehow foreign and domestic tourists will magically appear
But, the Minister of Tourism and Sports is a busy lady and probably because she had to preside over the opening of a hospitality school that will teach international classes in 2017, she just forgot about Trang.
I hope the other 11 hidden gems are not relying on the Minister of Tourism and Sports or the Tourism Authority of Thailand to promote them,
