Mrs. Juthaporn Rerngronasa, TAT Acting Governor and Deputy Governor for International Marketing – Europe, Africa, Middle East and Americas said, “Thailand is the ideal place to celebrate Global Wellness Day. For generations, the kingdom has been a centre of health as seen by the medical inscriptions at Wat Pho that promote the benefits of massage, to modern health and spa retreats that attract international visitors. We encourage everyone to come and discover how elements of ancient “Thainess” can improve their health.”
