TAT launches ‘Amazing Thailand NFTs Season 2’

Discover Thailand through digital art.

The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) unveiled the second season of its groundbreaking project, ‘Amazing Thailand NFTs Season 2.’ This innovative venture invites Thai tourists and foreign expats to collect Non-Fungible Token (NFT) virtual art items at 20 iconic tourist attractions across the country until April 30, with privileges and special discounts available until July 31.

Embracing Smart Tourism with NFTs

TAT Governor Yuthasak Supasorn, expressed his excitement about the project, stating that the expanded Amazing Thailand NFTs initiative highlights TAT’s commitment to leveraging technology and innovation to transform Thai tourism into Smart Tourism.

He said…

“Recognising digital as a game changer, we want to inspire Digital Asset holders to travel more within Thailand using Digital Art NFTs that are designed to turn our NFT products, namely Nature to keep, Food to explore, and Thainess to discover, into actual trips and offer new meaningful travel experiences.”

Building on the success of the 2022 Amazing Thailand NFTs project, which saw 17,118 NFTs accumulated by tourists from 3,999 items at each of the five locations, Season 2 promises to be even more spectacular. The project stimulated an estimated 43 million Baht in tourist spending last year.

To join the digital adventure, tourists and foreign expats can download the YAKS application (available for Android and iOS) and receive their first NFT artwork upon registration. Participants can check in within a two-kilometre radius of a tourist attraction to collect NFTs.

Designed by the talented artists at Riety Studio, each one-of-a-kind Digital Art NFT comes in the form of a polaroid picture of the tourist attraction. These items, classified as ‘Normal’ and ‘Rare,’ will be stored in the digital wallet of travelers who collect them and can be used to unlock privileges and discounts for airfare, accommodation, food and beverage, shopping, and other travel offers.

Moreover, foreign expats can access NFT Expat privileges, including discounts or exemptions on entrance fees to attractions such as Wat Phra Kaew (Temple of the Emerald Buddha), Wat Pho (Temple of the Reclining Buddha), and Wat Arun (Temple of Dawn).
