Thailand aims to attract more and more regional and international sporting events to the country. “Thailand is entering the sports and tourism era, and I would like to invite the world to enjoy some of the many opportunities the kingdom can offer sport-loving tourists – whether you are enthusiastic amateurs, professionals or somewhere in between,” Kobkarn said.

To promote the country’s sports facilities, The Thai government, along with the Sports Authority of Thailand and the Tourism Authority of Thailand are launching a new scheme that will include its 300 golf courses, 50 diving clubs, nationwide cycle lanes, and 5,000 boxing rings, many of which include Muay Thai training centres.

The country now has four training centres in Saraburi, Nakhon Ratchasima, Songkhla and Chiang Mai, while private facilities include Thanyapura Phuket, which has two Olympic-size swimming pools and became the first Fédération Internationale de Natation (FINA) training centre in Southeast Asia.

“Thai people have always been crazy about sports, but now we want Thailand to be seen as a centre of sports excellence too, and for people to come here to develop their skills and enjoy their favourite sports, on land and in the water. With our outdoor lifestyles and range of destinations, we have the potential to be a magnet for sportsmen and women,” the minister concluded.
