Bangkok, 21 April, 2020, at 12.30 Hrs. – The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) London Office has launched a series of “Stay at Home Thai Style’ videos and games to give Brits a taste of Thailand while they cannot travel to the ‘Land of Smiles’.
TAT London Office Director, Ms. Chiravadee Khunsub, said, “Our wish is to give Brits something to do to help their mental health and well-being during lockdown while providing them new skills to learn or games to play. It’s something all the family can get involved with.
“Whether you’ve been to Thailand or not, this is a great way to immerse yourself in a taste of Thai culture. Maybe, we’ll inspire a new wave of Thai boxing enthusiasts or budding Thai chefs!”
Stay at Home Thai Style
Each day will focus on a unique aspect of Thai culture. From a tasty Thai cooking class, relaxing wellness videos, to a high energy Muay Thai boxing workout, these will include:
- Monday: Stretch! Posture & Alignment (video) with Kamalaya Koh Samui and Healing Holidays
- Tuesday: Thai Crossword (game)
- Wednesday: Tone Up! Pilates inspired full body workout (video) with Kamalaya Koh Samui and Healing Holidays
- Thursday: Learn to talk Thai (pdf) with useful holiday phrases
- Friday: Muay Thai Boxing workout (video) with Semtex Gym and Muay Thai Holidays
- Saturday: Thai Cooking Class (video) with Katathani Collection

We remain at disposal to our trade partners during this difficult time and look forward to supporting business to Thailand when the time is right, Ms. Chiravadee concluded.
