Bangkok, 3 October 2016 – The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) announced today its participation within the F1 Village at the upcoming Japanese Formula 1 in another innovative move that will enhance the image of Thailand as a prime destination for travellers.
Mr. Chattan Kunjara Na Ayudhya, TAT’s Deputy Governor for Marketing Communications, said “We are happy to announce our first-ever participation inside the exclusive confines of the Japan F1 Village.”
“Besides this being our first foray into the Japan F1, we believe that TAT’s Amazing Thailand Pit Stop Spa will be the world’s first such facility for F1 fans to experience Thailand’s hospitality and relaxation ‘track-side’.”
TAT’s Amazing Thailand Pit Stop Spa has been a familiar sight at other world-class F1 venues; such as, Monaco and Melbourne but these have always been at downtown locations.
TAT is particularly excited this year to bring this unique experience to the heart of the F1 to some 160,000 Japanese and international racing fans.
Held from 6 to 9 October, at the Suzuka Circuit in Japan’s eastern prefecture of Mie, the annual Japan F1 is considered one of the fastest circuits in the F1 calendar and attracts visitors from all over the world. At a length of 5.807 kilometres, with 17 turns, Suzuka has shaped many world champions.
Mr. Chattan said the Amazing Thailand Pit Stop Spa has always been a crowd-pleaser wherever we take the concept.
“We use two racing-styled driver’s seats for the guest to sit in and for around 10 minutes he or she is soothed with a deeply relaxing head and shoulder massage.
“And it’s not uncommon to see the same face come back time and time again to grab another 10 minutes with our highly-trained traditional-style masseuses,” he added.
TAT believe that this little touch of Thailand will create more excitement and glamour at the F1 Village. This will further help to promote this aspect of Thai wisdom among the spectators, which will result in them wanting to travel to Thailand to experience it in the land of origin.
