Thainess can be found in many of Thailand’s annual festivals, but we have also created new events to enhance the awareness of the Thai way of happiness, and this T-POP Festival 2015 fits perfectly in our calendar of unique events to experience “Thainess” because many Thai pop stars have become popular internationally, especially in China, Hong Kong, South Korea and Japan.”

Mr. Noppadon Pakprot, TAT’s Executive Director – Events Department said, “To create awareness and entice interest, TAT is promoting the event through our offices in China, Hong Kong, South Korea and Japan. In addition, TAT and Thai Air Asia are jointly promoting the event by offering the first 100 travellers booking the airline’s air ticket to join the concert the chance to attend the meet-and-greet event with Thai pop stars.

Pong Nawat Kulrattanarak said, “I am proud to have the opportunity to help promote Thailand and be a part in promoting the 2015 Discover Thainess through T-POP Festival.
