Thailand Tourism Situation Update ~ January 2014 


*REMEMBER - TAT or Tourism Authority of Thailand, DO NOT SELL TOURS or TICKETS.

Anyone selling tours or tickets and claiming to be a trusted employee or agent of TAT is a LIAR.  There are quite a few private outfits which prominently proclaim "TAT" (and often in smaller print "license number"), which a surprising number of people appear to interpret as official TAT facilities. They are not.  And one may want to be cautious about approaching such places at all.  Normal (private) travel agencies tend to be decorated with travel posters, and plastered with handbills listing prices for air fares, hotels, tours, promotions, etc - so that you can get an idea of the offerings inside without even entering their premises.  The shadier ones noted in the first four sentences of this paragraph, and the honest ones noted in the fifth sentence, are all private businesses.
