Thais urged to spend in new tourism scheme

Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha is urging all Thais to take part in the "Travel Thailand with 100 Baht" tourism programme to help spur the economy.

Between Nov 11 and Dec 31, any Thai citizens aged 18 and over can buy of out of 40,000 gifts — which range from air tickets to hotel vouchers, car rentals to spa packages — for only 100 baht. The only requirement is that the item purchased must be located outside the buyer's home province.

The scheme, Gen Prayut said, will help the government put more money into circulation.

Each person wishing to participate must first register their details on the programme's official website, choose a gift, and pay using PromptPay or a credit card. Registration will be opened between Nov 11-12 and Dec 11-12.
