Travellers to Bangkok can now enjoy a mobile-first, sightseeing pass experience with Go Bangkok, Go City’s latest launch. This flexible pass offers great savings of up to 63% on entry to 23 of the city’s most popular attractions and experiences. Attractions include the Grand Palace, Emerald Buddha Walking Tour, Damnoen Saduak Floating Market, Chao Phraya River Dinner Cruise plus more unique experiences like the Tuk Tuk Night Tour and Go Bangkok Bicycle Tour.
With the Go Bangkok pass, travellers only need one digital pass to enter all attractions, paying nothing at the gate and saving up to 63% compared to buying tickets separately. There are Pass types to suit every budget, giving travellers the ability to personalise the pass by choosing the activities and sites they’re most excited about.
There are two options for the Go Bangkok pass, each one designed for a different type of travel style:
All-Inclusive: Sightseers who want to save big and tackle as much of the city as possible can opt for this pass, available to purchase for a span of two to five days. This is a great option for travellers who like to be spontaneous on vacation, since they can decide which and how many attractions to visit that day. A 2-day adult pass starts at S$157 and a 2-day child pass starts at S$134.
Explorer: This pass is designed for travellers who prefer to take their time and explore a few select attractions. Available for three to seven attractions which travellers have the flexibility to either choose before heading out on vacation or plan once they arrive. A 3-choice adult pass starts at S$101 and a 3-choice child pass starts at S$85.
The Go Bangkok pass is easy to use and can be purchased either online at www.gocity.com or within the Go City Pass app. Once you have your pass, you’re good to go. The app helps guide you to get the most out of your trip with the Build An Itinerary feature helping travellers plan their break, the Interests section recommending activities personalised to their likes and preferences and GPS capability to recommend nearby attractions once sightseers have finished the last experience.
“Go City helps travellers have the best city break they’ve ever had. At Go City, we are challenging the old way of sightseeing by giving travellers a convenient mobile pass that helps sightseers enjoy a more efficient and fun approach to exploring a city,” remarked Jon Owen, CEO, Leisure Pass Group.
An experienced corporate leader with a passion for digital growth, Jon became CEO of Leisure Pass Group at the beginning of 2020, after stepping up from his role as COO, which he had held since 2017.
During his tenure, Jon has taken hold of more than 65 percent of the market share and more than doubled the number of passes it’s sold in the past two years. Significantly extending Leisure Pass Group’s addressable market by investing in customer acquisition in Asia is also a priority.
“I am proud and delighted to serve as Leisure Pass Group’s Chief Executive Officer. This is an exciting time in the market as we continue to strive for growth and innovation in our products. We are thrilled to add Bangkok to our expanding portfolio so visitors can make their trip even better. Bangkok is one of the most energetic, dynamic and exciting cities in the world, so it’s no surprise it’s also one of the most visited. Tourist arrivals for Thailand hit over 39 million in 2019, an increase from 38 million in 2018 with a majority of them visiting Bangkok.
He adds, “We’re significantly expanding our product portfolio in Asia having launched Go Shanghai in 2018 and Go Singapore last October. We will be launching a Pattaya add-on to this pass, as well as more key cities around the region in the coming months.”
Jon simultaneously served as CEO of Ribble Cycles, one of the world’s longest-running bicycle manufacturers, and a non-executive director at OVO Energy. Before that, he worked at U.K.-based online retailer Shop Direct, where he ran Very.co.uk, a digital department store which he grew from £300 million to £800 million business and delivered significant improvements in EBITDA, from about £0 to £100 million.
