The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) recently upgraded its Amazing Thailand and Tourism Thailand mobile apps to ensure accurate and timely travel information at the fingertips of local and international tourists.

Mr. Yuthasak Supasorn, TAT Governor said, "New innovations have been incorporated into the Amazing Thailand and Tourism Thailand, two of our four existing mobile apps, which give travellers instant facts and data on general tourist information or more niche services. This is part of our drive to improve the visitor experience whether they're here for sightseeing, shopping, dining or health. We aim to constantly adapt to the way modern travellers seek services online and meet their expectations."

The English-language Amazing Thailand mobile app is aimed at helping international tourists find data on attractions, tours, dining and accommodation. Meanwhile, the Tourism Thailand mobile app offers a similar range of services to local travellers with Thai language listings about events and attractions.

Both the Amazing Thailand and Tourism Thailand mobile apps are now boasting new features including maps, GPS and 360 VR images of destinations to enable users to easily find attractions and gain preliminary impressions of places of interest. Information can also be shared via e-mail and other social media platforms and e-mail.

In addition, the Amazing Thailand mobile app also enable users to 'speak Thai' via an English-to-Thai translation dictionary, which can be voiced operated allowing tourists to find words they need to communicate with Thai people, shop owners and food sellers.

TAT also has two other apps for specific groups of travellers. The Muslim Friendly Destination mobile app lists Muslim friendly venues and includes features; such as, a Qibla compass and prayer times. Meanwhile, the Women's Journey Thailand keeps female travellers up to date with all the latest offers and promotions in dining, sport, health and beauty.
