With international travel being complicated right now, countries are trying to find creative ways to encourage domestic travel. And there’s no better way to do that than by floating the possibility of meeting a significant other.
Thailand is tapping into the romantic desires of its citizens, partnering with Tinder for the “Single Journey” initiative, which is pretty much exactly what it sounds like.
The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) is designing nine itineraries throughout the country specifically for singles. They’re starting with three pilot trips; the first is a cruise along the Chao Phraya River on December 20, and the other two to a beachside party in Phuket and the Pa Sak Jolasid Dam in Lopburi, both of which will take place in January 2021. The first trip will accommodate 100 singles, while the second and third will accommodate 50 each.
While the itineraries might be designed for solo travelers, the ultimate goal is clearly for those singles to pair off by the end of the adventure. After a year of quarantines, lockdowns, and travel restrictions, these trips sound like the perfect way for singles to unwind and finally meet someone new.
Bookings opened on December 15, and can be made through the Sneaksdeal website.
