Inaugurated on 9th June and set to conclude on 18th June 2023 at The Square, the event aligns with TAT’s vision of “Visit Thailand Year 2023: Amazing New Chapters” which aims to encourage global travellers to find meaningful travel experiences in Thailand.

The event invited guests to indulge in an exceptional culinary journey and savour Thailand’s rich and vibrant flavours.
