As part of Airbnb’s ongoing commitment and in support of the government’s efforts to help drive Thailand’s tourism recovery, Airbnb today launches a domestic travel campaign, “Stay ไทย Style เรา” (Stay Thai, Your Style). The campaign highlights Thailand’s incredible diversity of travel offerings, and encourages Thais and residents to explore the Kingdom this festive season in their own style while revisiting favourite destinations and discovering new ones.
There has never been a better time to travel domestically in Thailand, and “Stay ไทย Style เรา” showcases exceptional Airbnb Stays and Experiences throughout the country for Thai guests looking to travel to popular holiday destinations including Bangkok, Chiang Mai, Phuket, Khao Yai and Pattaya.
From creative spaces in the North to beach-inspired villas in the South, pet-friendly stays, relaxing nature getaways and city staycations, Airbnb offers something for every traveller. Whether you’re an urbanite, beach-lover, culture enthusiast or nature seeker, Airbnb’s unique listings and flexible search options are perfect for a group of friends looking for a weekend escape, a romantic couple seeking a quiet retreat, or a family planning a road trip.
Guests can also rediscover Thailand with Airbnb Experiences, which offer a wide variety of interesting activities facilitated by local Thai experts. Indulge in Cooking and Foraging in Nature Farm in Chiang Mai, go on a Bike and Food Tour through Bangkok’s alleys to discover the city’s hidden gems, join a City Run Tour to explore Sino-Portuguese architecture of Phuket Old Town, or hop on a long-tail boat to Explore Hidden Nai Nang Village in Krabi where guests can catch crabs while kayaking through mangroves and stalactites.
“In an unprecedented year where domestic travel is the new norm, Airbnb’s ‘Stay ไทย Style เรา’ domestic travel campaign aims to encourage Thais and residents to rediscover the country in their own style,” said Amanpreet Bajaj, General Manager (India, Southeast Asia, Hong Kong and Taiwan), Airbnb. “We encourage Thais to explore our passionate host community and the unique Stays and Experiences they offer, we hope locals will enjoy exploring places closer home this holiday season.”
To further drive awareness around the campaign, Airbnb are working with a number of creative Thai pioneers with backgrounds in travel, the arts and sports who will bring attention to these unique destinations and offerings through their authentic content and storytelling across popular social media platforms. Through engaging creators including Artist “Phaan” Chanaradee Chatrakul Na Ayudhya (aka Juli Baker and Summer), Musician “Pleng” Tongta Jitdee (aka Sunshine Is Over Me) and ultra trail runner “Oopaib” Pakanee Burutphakdee (aka I’m Oopaib), Airbnb aims to reignite the passion for domestic travel amongst Thais and residents who are increasingly turning to explore their backyard during this quieter time.
Speaking of the campaign, “Phaan” Chanaradee Chatrakul Na Ayudhya shared, “I’m excited to be collaborating with Airbnb on this campaign. I’ve been a passionate Airbnb traveller for many years and I feel that when travelling with Airbnb it is more authentic and beneficial to locals. I also like connecting with Airbnb hosts; they give great local tips, better than you will find in any guidebook, and they often become friends.”
