AmazingThailand_NewMs Soraya Homchuen has been appointed as director of the Tourism Authority of Thailand in Mumbai. Her jurisdiction will cover western and southern India (where her efforts will complement those in TAT New Delhi) as well as Sri Lanka and the Maldives.

Ms Homchuen is the youngest individual to earn the role director at a TAT overseas office. She brings a great amount of expertise to the Indian market due to having worn several hats during her tenure at TAT, which began in 1994: Her most recent post was as a Marketing Officer, ASEAN, South Asia and South Pacific Department, TAT. Assignments preceding these saw her at helm of TAT’s R&D activities as Chief of Academic Section at TAT’s Market Research Division. Ms Homchuen has also dabbled with marketing and PR in the past in her early roles as Public Relations Officer, International Public Relations Division, TAT.  Prior to this served as Planning Officer, Research and Statistics Division, TAT and as General Administration Officer, working for the team serving the Deputy Governor for Planning and Development, TAT.

Ms Homchuen graduated from Chulalongkorn University with a Bachelor of Arts (English) degree and she followed this up with a Master of Arts (English for Career) degree at Thammasat University. Ms Homchuen also undertook a Tourism Management Course at the Schloss Klessheim Institute of Tourism and Hotel Management, Salzburg, Austria and later, a Tourism Destination Management Course at WES, Brugge, Belgium.

Born in India’s favourite tourism city, Bangkok, Ms Homchuen has been to India on myriad occasions as a tourist. She enjoys the destination’s nature, culture, history – her most recent leisure experience in India has been to Mahatma Gandhi’s residence in Ahmedabad – and most of all, Indian hospitality. She is keen to invite Indians to Thailand to have a first-hand experience of Thailand’s world-renowned hospitality. She says, “Indian people are very warm and welcoming. The genuine hospitality I have experienced here has touched my heart and made me feel truly at-home even though I am so far away from Thailand. I would really like every Indian to come and have a similar experience of Thai hospitality.”

Her first impression of the Indian market is that it has tremendous potential and she looks forward to boosting arrivals from India to Thailand in the coming years.
