Tourism New Zealand, national carrier Thai Airways and Auckland Airport have just launched a new initiative offering special deals to families travelling from Thailand to picturesque New Zealand.
The campaign aims to encourage Thai families to explore New Zealand’s stunning landscapes and experience the golden season of autumn by road.
Themed ‘Explore 100% Pure New Zealand Autumn Colour by Road’ this strategic collaboration offers Thais the chance to visit and experience international attractions like the geothermal city of Rotorua for its unique Maori culture, the Hobbiton Movie Set & Farm Tours in Matamata, and New Zealand’s largest fresh water lake of Lake Taupo.
Other outdoor attractions offered include the rustic Kiwi country life, the amazingly scenic Queenstown which is also known as the “Adventure Capital” of New Zealand where bungee jumping was born, the quaint and picturesque village of Arrowtown which comes to life with vibrant colours every autumn, and the awesome Aoraki Mount Cook range of snow-capped mountains, pristine glacial lakes and a network of powder-blue canals.
Mischa Mannix-Opie, regional manager south and south-east Asia, Tourism New Zealand added: “New Zealand definitely has a lot to offer Thai travellers, and we want to become one of the top vacation choices for Thais looking to experience something different.
New Zealand offers one of the world best road trip experiences, either by coach or self-drive, it is a destination that is readily accessible and filled with diverse and spectacular landscapes that will surprise any traveller, whom will go home full of memories of our warm hospitality.
“In the year ended December 2012, we welcomed 16,944 visitors from Thailand and we look forward to welcoming more Thai travellers to our shores.”
