Now that things have returned to normal in Bangkok (though the political battles continue in legal chambers now) the city and country find that tourism has taken a serious hit (surprise, surprise!). Those in the know are taking advantage of some of the desperate times, desperate offers many hotels, restaurants and travel agencies are putting out.

Well, MasterCard and Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) even called a press conference to announce their deal.

They have some ideas and offers for you and if you are still shy about Bangkok, they have specials to get outside the city as well. Fly from Bangkok to 8 different places: Chiang Mai, Chiang Rai, Udonthani, Krabi, Phuket, Phitsanulok, Ubonratchathani and Suratthani or just fly into Bangkok and drive to 4 others: Pattaya, Hua Hin, Cha-am and Khao Yai. Or not. Just stay here. You have options.

The deal is this: a per person price (minimum two people) of 5,999 baht includes roundtrip airfare with Nok Air from Bangkok to the destination city, two nights accommodations, and a rental car. You have to book by September 15th, 2010 and complete the travel by September 30th, 2010. MasterCard Worldwide also provides free travel insurance if you buy the package with your MasterCard.

Contact Fly and Drive Booking & Call Center at +66 (0) 2250 4580-3, +66 (0) 8 2790 0933 Mon–Fri from 09.00 am -06.00 pm (Bangkok time) or get a booking form at www.tourismthailand.org/flyanddrivethailand and fax it to +66 (0) 2652 0528. Only cash or MasterCard payment is accepted. More information should be available at the MasterCard site.

Not a bad deal.

    Great initiative Kevin by MC and TAT.

    Also did you know that Thai Airways are offering a special deal for Gold Frequent Fliers. You can redeem two international award tickets at 50% off.

    Pre bookings for Gold members take place from July 15-28th and for other members from 29th July. Travel to be taken by October 31 2010.

    I am hoping to pick up some tickets and for international travel to Bangkok and then onto London because it is a great bargain.
