Thailand Takes Tourism Safety Up A Notch

egtmedia59Thailand guarantees a safer visit for tourists with the signing ceremony of Memorandum of Cooperation on Law of Tourism Protection between the Ministry of Tourism and Sports, Royal Thai Police, Court of Justice and Office of Attorney General, aiming to facilitate the administration of justice for troubled tourists who have limited time of stay in Thailand. 

When a foreign tourist arrives, he or she faces the first difficult challenge when commuting which is language barrier.  This can lead to many negative experiences for the tourist. The MOU guarantees tourists will be helped with any problems they may encounter during their visit; this includes the slightest cases of stolen items to lawsuit cases in court.

The MOU, initiated from the policies given by H.E. Mr. Somsak Pureesrisak, Minister of Tourism and Sports, emphasizes on tourist safety as the first priority, with the idea of sustainable tourism and generating tourism income to 2.2 trillion baht (70 billion USD) in 2015.

The country being a well-known destination for tourists initially has a safety standard, which might not be able to service the growing number of tourist complaints.  With the MOU, all procedures will be dealt with first hand having a special department created just for the cause.  The MOU has begun in Pattaya, and will open in other popular tourist spots starting from Samui, Phuket, Chiang Mai, and two departments will be set up in Bangkok.

The MOU is formed from four organizations joining forces with the Ministry of Tourism and Sports has resulted in the establishment of the Tourism Case Division in Pattaya.  This is a huge step in the country’s tourism industry.  Tourists can now be rest assured and enjoy their vacation knowing that they are being overlooked upon, so they can travel with the slightest worries.  The next time you plan your trip to Thailand, keep in mind that the tourist police is right by your side.
