Tourism Malaysia closes Phuket office after 13 years

PHUKET: Tourism Malaysia announced today that it will close its Phuket office and all other offices outside of Bangkok by the end of this month.

“There will only be one office in Thailand, and that will be in Bangkok,” Deputy Director General of Tourism Malaysia Chong Yoke Har said.

Mrs Chong made the announcement at an appreciation dinner for Phuket’s media and tour operators from six southern provinces at the Blue Elephant Restaurant this evening.

“Closing the Phuket office doesn’t mean we will forget about the southern region,” she said.

“Our staff will pay visits to the southern provinces to continue our cooperation,” she added.

Mrs Chong said more staff would be concentrated in the Bangkok office to improve operations there.

The Phuket office has been open for 13 years.
