The Tourism Authority of Thailand has launched a new promotional campaign that will see a fleet of vehicles dubbed ‘tuxis’ driving around the streets of England’s capital city.
Fifty London cabs have been decorated to look like a traditional Thai tuk-tuk, a form of transport that is popular among tourists visiting the country.
Featuring the strap line ‘See something amazing every day’, the special taxis were sent out onto the street after being officially launched at the Royal Thai Embassy in Kensington.
Among the first passengers to use the vehicles were Thailand’s ambassador and the governor of the country’s tourism organisation, who were transported to London’s ExCel centre for the first day of the World Travel Market.
As well as promoting Thailand, the taxis will give customers the opportunity to win a holiday with Thai Airways and Centara Hotels and Resorts.
