As neighbouring countries, Thailand is undeniably among one of the favourite destinations for Malaysians to travel and unwind in leisure. After 4 million Malaysians arrival in 2018, the official Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) is overjoyed to organise a Gala Dinner “Thanks 4 Million – Let’s Celebrate Songkran Festival” to celebrate this success.
Held at Mandarin Oriental Hotel Kuala Lumpur on April 19, the event is just timely for Thai New Year, a month of Songkran Festival in Thailand. His Excellency Mr. Narong Sasitorn, the Ambassador of Thailand to Malaysia officiated the momentous Gala Dinner.
The success in welcoming 4 million Malaysians into Thailand has recorded a revenue of 114,896 million Baht (approximately RM14,730 million) generated from tourism alone.
