The Tourism Authority of Thailand has launched a new tourism campaign highlighting temples and other places of worship, offering tourism products for specific tourists while promoting the preservation of Thai traditions.

The Tourism Authority of Thailand’s (TAT) campaign is known as the WAT, short for Worship Activities Tradition, as a preparation for the country’s anticipated reopening to tourists.

TAT Governor Yuthasak Supasorn said the TAT has created 15 tourism routes across the country that lead tourists to places of worship and other tourism attractions, with a connection to local communities.

Speaking at the press conference, the Minister of Tourism and Sports Phiphat Ratchakitprakarn, said the new campaign will offer domestic tourists information on places of worship that they can visit and pay their respects to, while at the same time experiencing local cultures and traditions in each area.
