Bangkok--9 Feb--Dusit International

Dusit International, one of Thailand's foremost hotel and property development companies, has rolled out Alipay at its hotels and resorts in Thailand to cater to Chinese travellers who prefer to make quick and secure payments via mobile.

With over 520 million users and counting, China-based Alipay is one of the world's largest mobile payment platforms which allows its users to pay for goods and services by scanning QR codes on their smartphones or tablets. Its presence is ubiquitous in Chinese cities, where mobile payments are fast becoming a way of life.

Dusit International already accepts Alipay at all of its hotels and resorts in China. Alongside Thailand, it also plans to roll out the system at its international properties soon.

"The Chinese market is a key segment for our hotels in Thailand, so it is important our properties are equipped to meet the needs of those who prefer to pay via mobile, now the method of choice in China," said Mr Lim Boon Kwee, Chief Operating Officer, Dusit International. "Alipay can certainly enrich and enhance the guest experience for all our Chinese travellers."

Dusit Hotels & Resorts in Thailand now accept Alipay at their restaurants, spas, participating outlets, and for hotel rooms upon check-out. The properties also accept China's other major mobile wallet, WeChat Pay.

Dusit properties in Thailand include Dusit Thani Bangkok, Dusit Thani Hua Hin, Dusit Thani Pattaya, Dusit Thani Laguna Phuket, Dusit Thani Beach Resort Krabi, dusitD2 Chiang Mai, dusitD2 Khao Yai, Dusit Princess Srinakarin Bangkok, and Dusit Princess Chiang Mai.

Alipay is operated by Ant Financial, an affiliate of Alibaba Group Holding Limited, a Chinese multinational e-commerce, retail, and technology conglomerate which is one of the top 10 most valuable companies in the world.
