“Tourism connects people, and some people might end up being lifetime partners,” said Thapanee Kiatphaibool, deputy governor for the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT). “Tourists can also help support tourism and the economy during tough times.”

The Single Journeys campaign features nine tourism routes through various cities and towns, including Mae Hong Son, Chiang Mai,  Phuket, and Pattaya.
