Thailand is pushing for diversity tourism

With its slogan ‘Amazing Thailand, Open to the new shades’, Thailand is now embracing LGBT+ tourism. Last year, the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) was the of cial sponsor of the ITB Berlin LGBT Media Brunch and it will again be present during the same event this year. The country has been an important destination for LGBT+ communities due, to the tolerant attitudes of local people. But, according to TAT, the kingdom could further appeal to LGBT+ communities as the government is looking at legalising same-sex partnerships. A decision could be taken by the next government following national elections at the end of this month. The TAT is also planning to release the first guide book for Bangkok, providing useful information and tips for LGBT+ and LGBT-friendly travellers.
