Experience Thai at Think Thailand Festival Malaysia
Can’t wait to visit Thailand yet? No problem as you can now Experience Thai at Think Thailand Festival Malaysia! Indulge in a wealth of Thai culture, food and many more features at “THINK THAILAND” Festival. Organized by The Royal Thai Embassy, in collaboration with the Department of International Trade Promotion, Ministry of Commerce (DITP), and Tourism Authority of Thailand, the festival will be the largest, most exceptional and eventful Thai event ever organized in Malaysia, with the aim to support both Thai exporters and Malaysian importers in boosting the sales of Thai products in Malaysia, while marking our readiness to welcome the Malaysians back to Thailand once again.
This 12-day Thai festival will take place at Tropicana Gardens Mall, with in-store promotions at Aeon, Segi Fresh and NSK outlets throughout Kuala Lumpur and Selangor from 26 May till 6 June, 2022. Many authentic, newly launched, and specially priced products will be on offer during this time.
I went to Think Thailand Festival on their launch day and I was impressed the overall Thai experience. Since I visited Thailand quite often, I can see many familiar food and brands at the Think Thailand Festival at Tropicana Gardens Mall.
According to the Minister Counsellor and Director of DITP, Mr Worawan Wanwil: “More than 30 Thai exporters have taken the time to travel to Malaysia for this festival. They are specially flown in to showcase their Thai products. Apart from that, this event will include Thai SELECT awarded Thai-in Mookata restaurants, your very own Malaysia’s Mrs Jones’ Parlour, Kwong Cheung Loong Kopitiam Bar, Hallaway, as well as exceptional massage from Thai Odyssey, and many others.
Online and on-site business matching has been arranged with more than 50 Thai qualified exporters. We now have confirmed 63 matches with an expected trade value of RM30 million within this year.
We have collaborated with Shopee to list more than 300 Thai sellers in their E-commerce platform so Malaysian shoppers can buy directly from Thailand and have their products delivered to their doorsteps.
For the past few years, we have observed an increasing demand in quality Halal Thai products from Malaysian consumers, therefore we have allocated a special section for Thailand International Halal Showcase (TIHAS) at this festival. TIHAS is a mini side-event of THAIFEX 2022 which is happening now in Bangkok from May 24-28. The highlight for TIHAS is that the Malaysian Food importers who visit this showcase will be eligible to be DITP’s special guests to visit THAIFEX 2023.
With these set-up and activities, we are confident to generate more than RM6 million sales during this festival.”
“THINK THAILAND welcomes all of you to experience these special Thai products, goods, and food with many more line-ups when you visit us! Other than the shows mentioned, we have prepared more excitement for everyone every day during the period of the festival. If you still can’t visit Thailand at the moment, it is okay, because we are bringing Thailand to you! Prepare yourselves to have an enjoyable time with us at THINK THAILAND and we look forward to welcoming you with our Thai smiles and warm hearts.”
There are familiar faces and brands such as Tourism Authority of Thailand, Thai Odyssey and more. What we like about the Think Thailand Festival is the Thai food imported just for the event.
We know many people wanted to travel to Thailand and Think Thailand Festival 2022 brings it to Malaysia. You can sample various popular Thai food, drinks as well experience the Thai culture such as dance performance, Thai Boxing, Live Band, Thai Massage and more.
If you like Thai food, there are Food stalls (Halal and Non Halal) as well as beer counters like Singha and Chang Beer.
I tried some of the food ThaiLuck, Mr Tuk Tuk, Thai In Mookata and they are delicious. If you visit the outdoor area during evening, there will be live bands to entertain you.
During this festival, for every RM50 purchase of Thai products at the designated outlets, consumers are eligible to participate in a lucky draw to win very attractive prizes, which include 2 return flight tickets on Air Asia, 2 Hotel accommodation in Thailand, 1 Oppo Smartphone, 20 Thai SELECT vouchers, 20 Thai Odyssey vouchers, 5 travel luggage, 10 Hampers worth RM300 each and 30 Hampers worth RM100 each.
