TAT organising annual rail tour to Elephant Round-Up

The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) is organising a railway tour covering the annual Elephant Round-up Festival in Surin Province as well as major attractions in the Northeastern region, the culturally diverse bridgehead to the neighbouring countries of Lao PDR and Cambodia.

The three-day two-night tour will be organized during 16-18 November 2007, in cooperation with the State Railways of Thailand, Association of Thai Tour Operators, Association of Domestic Tour Operators, Thai Ecotourism and Adventure Travel Association, Thai Tourism Promotion Association, and Association of Thai Travel Agents.

According to TAT Governor, Mrs. Phornsiri Manoharn, “This tour to the Annual Surin Elephant Round-up Show has been organised by the Tourism Authority of Thailand since 1960.

“It is designed to promote domestic tourism and better distribute income to local regions, particularly in the northeast of Thailand. It also promotes travelling by train which helps to offset its environmental impact,” she said.
