Central Pattana in partnership with Klook is launching a new bus route that will operate between three major malls: Central World, Central Pattaya, and Central Village, for only 190 baht.
Today, April 28th, Mr. Nattakit Tangpoonsinthana, Vice President of the Marketing Division of Central Pattana Plc (CPN), revealed that the company is opening a new bus route to accommodate the growing number of foreign tourists.
In the first quarter of 2023, there were 6.4 million tourists, generating over 250 billion baht in tourism revenue for Thailand, reports the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT).
The top-five arrivals to Thailand are Malaysians, Russians, Chinese, South Koreans, and Indians. The TAT anticipates that Chinese tourists will rank first soon, with at least 5 million arrivals.
Furthermore, Bangkok was chosen as the most popular destination that foreign tourists most searched for, followed by Pattaya, Chiang Mai, Krabi, and Phuket. Therefore, the new bus route would greatly cater to tourists’ needs with its easy and fast booking process, convenience, and security, Nattakit said.
Tourists can easily purchase the ticket online and reserve it on the day of travel by confirming their booking 2 hours ahead of the departure.
They can also receive extra privileges from participating malls such as a welcome package worth 3,000 baht by becoming a member of The1 Tourist card, a premium gift bag from Good Goods, and 2 hours of free Wi-Fi. Furthermore, customers can redeem a complimentary herbal drink when purchasing products worth 1,500 baht at the participating malls, Nattakit stated.
The bus will operate between Central World, Central Pattaya, and Central Village at a fare of 190 baht per person per round.
