To stimulate domestic tourism and help revive the economy after the pandemic, hotels plan to offer expats a 1,000 baht discount on rooms until the end of the year. Since the coronavirus outbreak, occupancy rates have fallen drastically and many hotels temporarily closed. The president of the Thai Hotels Association says it’s still necessary to continue with the stimulus campaign. She adds that the association is urging hotels not to raise the room rates or quote unfair prices to expats.
