A new tourism app has been launched in Bangkok by global travel giants Go City that allows culture vultures to visit more than 30 attractions for the price of a ticket.
The London-based tourist travel agency has invested around US$35 million in preparation for the resumption of international travel after the easing of pandemic restrictions to help operators digitize their ticketing services, and has targeted Thailand in particular. and the Asia-Pacific region.
The world’s largest multi-attraction pass provider has made Bangkok one of its newest locations, along with Tokyo, Seoul and Kuala Lumpur, after previously launching in Singapore and Hong Kong. And the recent resumption of travel after Thailand’s opening prompted the company to reintroduce its product to serve Thai locals and tourists.
Go City chief executive Jon Owen explains that the company’s business model aims to provide a combined package of attractions, experiences and tours for a single price.
“We have partnered with 30 attractions and tours in Bangkok and plan to include 10-15 more in our pass as the city continues to see high demand from European and American tourists.”
The company is looking to promote the Go City pass in other Thai cities in the future. Prior to the coronavirus outbreak, Thai travelers were the region’s fifth-largest market, with the London Pass being the top-selling product.
Go City also wants to highlight lesser known attractions so visitors can explore more with their 1, 2 or 3 day passes.
Current attractions available in Bangkok include the King Power Mahanakhon Skywalk, Chinatown Food Tour, Chao Phraya River Dinner Cruise and Tuk Tuk Night Tour.
