The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) has launched a re-developed and updated version of its news website, www.tatnews.org, to improve its ability to support the international media with news and updates on the country’s travel and hospitality industry.
The re-designed and user-friendly website www.tatnews.org boasts a fresh new look and features all the latest news and highlights from TAT. The site’s content is produced, updated and distributed on a daily basis. The TAT Newsroom website also provides round-the-clock updates on all issues affecting tourism and travel to the destination; such as, political concerns and natural disasters. A special section of the website, called Situation Update, provides “as it happens” information with fast facts, figures and data for tourists, members of the media and industry insiders about the current situation in Thailand.
The website’s photo library section has also been revamped, so that the media can quickly and easily access relevant pictures from the image bank for articles about tourism in Thailand. If images are needed for online media, low resolution pictures can be instantly saved. High resolution versions can be ordered and delivered within 48 hours for use in print media. New images of Thailand’s tourist attractions, activities, festivals and infrastructure will be added on a weekly basis.
