Peaceful Thailand Protests 'Overhyped', says DialAFlight

DialAFlight say protest threat to tourists in Thailand was overstated. Thailand has bounced back strongly since protests disrupted

    LONDON, ENGLAND, May 04, 2011 /24-7PressRelease/ -- In an interview for DIalAflight's Red Chair TV Joanna Cooke of the Thailand Tourist Board agreed that the press overhyped last year's protests in Thailand and that the threat to tourists was not serious. Cooke pointed out that the protests were largely carried out in a festive, non-hostile fashion in keeping with the Thai people's famous warmth and hospitality.

Cooke also claims that tourism in Thailand took just three months to bounce back from a short lived set back in the wake of the protests and is now looking healthier than ever.

"Tourism bounced straight back and actually we've seen record numbers since then, so we've had a very successful year"

The clear message is that tourism in Thailand is very much back on track and that 2011 looks set to be a year of growth, despite challenging circumstances.

Thailand's swift emergence from a post protest blip and apparent resistance to difficult economic times reinforces its well established status as a truly world class travel destination. Cooke says that, although Thailand is a long haul destination for British holidaymakers, it actually offers great value for money. Because it is such a 'complete' destination, Thailand is perfect for travellers who can only afford one holiday a year. With flights to Thailand available from just GBP355 from DialAFlight it is also an exceptionally well priced long haul holiday destination.
