“Food and meals are a big part of Indian itineraries. I think that people will appreciate the special deals being offered so that they may experience Thai cuisine in a bigger way. Many Indian travellers are foodies who enjoy Thai cuisine and want to sample more of it. Many also need to experience Thai cuisine beyond street food and I think that the Indian traveller will appreciate the Thailand Splash & Spice Festival,” said Tourism Authority of Thailand, Mumbai director Soraya Homchuen.
Held annually, it was originally initiated by Tourism Authority of Thailand and VISA. Usually a month-long festival, this year it will be held for three months with Udon Thani in north eastern Thailand joining as well.
