Thailand green-lights more domestic tourism stimulus

The Thai government has approved more measures to trigger greater domestic tourism spend in a bid to lift the struggling travel and tourism sector that has been beset with losses from the absence of global travel.

Thai residents will get more hotel and flight subsidies for their domestic travel

According to Reuters, the enhanced package will include a 40 per cent discount on 10 hotel nights for each traveller, up from five nights offered in an earlier stimulus scheme, while a subsidy on flights will double to 2,000 baht (US$63.50).

The cabinet has also approved maintaining the valued-added tax at seven per cent for another year to September 2021, finance minister Predee Daochai said in a statement.
