The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) wants to mark the country’s grand reopening by inviting Lalisa “Lisa” Manoban and Andrea Bocelli to perform in a countdown celebration event this year.
TAT governor Yuthasak Supasorn said this plan is still pending and requires further consideration. The idea is to increase tourism confidence and put the country back in the global spotlight after Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha announced most of the country plans to reopen to vaccinated foreigners without a quarantine in November.
Federation of Thai Industries chairman Supant Mongkolsuthree previously mentioned Thailand should invite Lalisa “Lisa” Manoban to be a tourism ambassador by starting a discussion with her label in South Korea.
“Inviting both Andrea Bocelli, a world-class Italian opera tenor, and K-pop superstar Lalisa to perform at a big event will require a large investment, meaning additional budget approval from the government and partial support from private sector. However, the fan base of the two artists, particularly Lalisa, totals at least 20 million globally. It is worth trying to bring them here for a special occasion,” he said.
