Dusit hotels in Thailand are now accepting Alipay,
a move which is designed to primarily cater to Chinese travellers
who prefer to make quick and secure payments via mobile.
With over 520 million users and counting,
China-based Alipay is one of the world’s largest mobile payment
platforms which allows its users to pay for goods and services by
scanning QR codes on their smartphones or tablets.
Dusit International already accepts Alipay at all of
its hotels and resorts in China. Alongside Thailand, it also plans
to roll out the system at its international properties soon.
“The Chinese market is a key segment for our hotels in
Thailand, so it is important our properties are equipped to meet
the needs of those who prefer to pay via mobile, now the method of
choice in China,” said Mr Lim Boon Kwee, Chief Operating Officer,
Dusit International. “Alipay can certainly enrich and enhance the
guest experience for all our Chinese travellers.”
Hotels & Resorts in Thailand now accept Alipay at their
restaurants, spas, participating outlets, and for hotel rooms upon
check-out. The properties also accept China’s other major mobile
wallet, WeChat Pay.
Dusit properties in Thailand include
Dusit Thani Bangkok, Dusit Thani Hua Hin, Dusit Thani Pattaya,
Dusit Thani Laguna Phuket, Dusit Thani Beach Resort Krabi, dusitD2
Chiang Mai, dusitD2 Khao Yai, Dusit Princess Srinakarin Bangkok,
and Dusit Princess Chiang Mai.
Alipay is operated by Ant
Financial, an affiliate of Alibaba Group.
