Thailand’s often known as the Land of Smiles, but sales-frenzied, discount shoppers like us like to think of it as the Land of Shopping. Because whatever it is you’re looking for from elephant pants to quirky phone cases – they’ve got it all. And, they’ve got it in bulk at super cheap prices.
Here’s an excuse for another shopping haul: Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) is offering free shopping vouchers up to 1000 baht (~S$40) to all Singaporean travellers to Thailand.
We often flock to Thailand for their tasty street food to feast on everything from crab pad thai to boat noodles.
Thailand’s pristinely white beaches and bustling street food vendors are all worth stopping by, but it’s the sheer number of shopping centres that we’re marvelling at. From new malls to our favourite Bangkok haunts, they take shopping to a whole ‘nother ball game.
And that’s when TAT’s Shopping Vouchers come into play.
Buying clothes at wholesale prices at Platinum Mall.
To redeem up to THB1,000 (~S$40) Cash Shopping Vouchers*, all you need to do is book a flight to Thailand from now to 30 November 2018. Each Singaporean traveller can redeem THB500 worth of Cash Shopping Vouchers.
If you’re travelling in a group of at least 4 people^, you can then get an additional THB500/person in vouchers.That’s THB4,000 Cash Shopping Vouchers in total!

Tourism Authority of Thailand knows that we always have a soft spot for Thailand, and given the chance, we’ll always be shopping up a storm or sipping at a cocktail at one of their many rooftop bars. Because of that, they’re rewarding us with their Thanks A Million promotion, to mark how 1 million Singaporeans travelled to Thailand in 2017.
For that, we can redeem shopping vouchers worth up to THB1,000* or even win holiday package giveaways*. If you’re the 1 millionth Singaporean visitor to Thailand this year, you might even win travel packages worth $5,000!
