Leading Thai Malls set to become Must Visit Destinations with Dazzling Line Up of 700 Eateries
Kuala Lumpur, 2 August 2022 – With COVID-19 finally relinquishing its grip on society, Malaysians across the country have been flocking to malls, restaurants, cinemas and more as they look to make up for lost time. One thing many Malaysians have been craving is to finally scratch their travel itch and the past few months have seen just that with revenge travel becoming a term and topic hotly discussed.
A recent announcement from Thai deputy government spokesman Traisuree Taisaranakul, shed light on revenge travel as it pertains to Malaysians – indicating that Malaysians made up the second largest tourist group visiting the country in May of this year.
The rise in tourism in our neighbours to the north is unsurprising with travel and health restrictions being relaxed significantly just recently – including the removal of the requirements for pre-travel registrations and medical insurance for tourists as well as the lifting of mask mandates and extension of operating hours for nightlife establishments. These relaxed rules combined with the convenience, affordability, diversity of attractions and importantly, undeniably delicious food have seen Thailand jump to the very top of many Malaysian travel bucket lists.
The Mall Group, one of Thailand’s leading mall chains, award winning shopping malls for both local and international prizes, in compliance with 9 malls, 7 stand-alone and 2 online sites, is looking to further tantalise and tempt Malaysian tourists with a bountiful array of exciting eats and entertainment across three of Bangkok’s most popular tourist malls – Siam Paragon, The Emporium and The EmQuartier.
“We know Malaysians love food – even here in Bangkok, we meet many Malaysians and the one thing they all have in common is their love for food. So with more Malaysians looking to make their way up to Thailand to get their travel and food fixes sorted, we want to make sure that our malls have an unmissable line-up of tasty treats and other activities to delight all Malaysian tourists,” said Ms Voralak Tulaporn – Chief Marketing Officer, The Mall Group Co., Ltd.
Siam Paragon is located at the heart of Bangkok’s main shopping & business spanning 13 acres of land, it houses over 7,500 brands from luxury, fashion, beauty, leather goods, food and more.
Meanwhile, situated in the epicentre of Sukhumvit residential & business area is the EM District, consisting of the The Emporium and the The EmQuartier which are an interconnected combo of premium malls, direct access with BTS PromPhong station, surrounded by the spectacle of greenery at Benjasiri Park, offering true shopping highlights of both international calibre and local popularity.
