BBDO Bangkok, in partnership with Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT), has officially unveiled an exciting, new global campaign under Amazing Thailand, titled‘Open to the New Shades at World Travel Market (WTM), London, United Kingdom, in 2017

Thailand is a country known to travelers across the world for its signature dishes, beaches, cultural festivals and most of all, the kindness of Thai people and their smiles. These qualities are some of Thailand’s amazing assets that, over the years, have helped make visits truly memorable.

Even though the country is well recognized among travelers for its charms, there are lots of hidden, diversified and unique local cultural experience that are yet to be discovered. Unexplored travel locations, local food and craftsmanship await, ready to offer never-before-seen experience to visitors.

TAT and BBDO Bangkok hope that Amazing Thailand ‘Open to the New Shades’ – TAT’s international marketing communications campaign of 2018 – will be able to offer a variety of experience that travelers can freely customize to create their very own journeys in Thailand. This campaign aims to introduce the new shades of Thailand, by inviting travelers from around the world to experience Thailand through a different lens, and shed light on Thailand’s celebration of diversity. It hopes to encourage travelers to open their minds to the new travel experience Thailand has to offer, just as Thailand is opening its arms to welcome them.

To best reach its target audience, world travelers who seek enriching, new experience, BBDO Bangkok has created a 2-minute online short-film. It features three different groups of travelers who encounter unexplored, new shades of Thailand, which makes them realize that traveling with an open-mind can change their views of themselves and of the world.
