Amazing Thailand Grand Sale
Grand sale extended until 31 August to attract shoppers.
Tourism Authority of Thailand is currently promoting the Amazing Thailand Grand Sale 2009 that runs until 31 August in the hope it will help stimulate tourism during what it calls the "green season".
The Amazing Thailand Grand Sale offers discounts of between 10 and 70% at participating department stores, shopping complexes and retail outlets along designated “Shopping Streets.” The campaign runs in Bangkok, Chiang Mai, Pattaya, Phuket, Hua Hin, Samui and Hat Yai.
Grand SaleShopping Streets at these destinations provide a convenient opportunity to browse for bargains and check out handicrafts including decorative items for the home.
In addition to discounts there are special promotions on offer at retail and service outlets displaying the 'Thailand Grand Sale' decal. However, conditions apply and it always a good idea to read the small print to understand any limitations on use.
The special offers include free gifts, discount coupons, vouchers and lucky draw prizes.
In Pattaya, Chonburi province, more than 200 hoteliers have joined the campaign to offer discounts on accommodation or add other features such as a complimentary spa treatment.
As more department stores and shopping malls have opened this year, the choice in Pattaya has grown considerably to include discounts at Home Product Centre; Avenue Pattaya; Royal Garden Plaza; Carrefour Pattaya; Aiyaree Place; World Gems Collection; Central Centre Pattaya; Central Festival Pattaya Beach; and Mike Shopping Mall.
