Bangkok, January 25, 2017

Dusit International, in partnership with Thai companies such as Bangkok Bank, Boon Rawd Brewery, Central Group, Chiva-Som International Health Resort, Jim Thompson, Siam Piwat, Thai Airways and the Tourism Authority of Thailand, have come together to publish a tourism book.


Titled Thailand Tourism: The Early Days, the book details the history of the tourism industry in Thailand and the pioneers behind its early development, including icons such as Kusa Panyarachun, founder of Thailand’s first travel agency; Prasert Prasarttong-Osoth, founder of Bangkok Airways; and Chanut Piyaoui, founder of Dusit International.

All proceeds from the book sales will be donated to the Royal Project Foundation, which helps to improve the living conditions of Thailand’s rural communities.
