Former Nok Air CEO, Mr. Patee Sarasin, is in the
process of launching a new travel company that he says will embrace new
technology such as chatbots so that travellers can seek unique
experiences rather than simply searching for destinations to travel
Initially, the “Really Really Cool” chatbot,
which Mr. Patee is hoping to launch early next year, will speak
Thai and focus on Thai clients. It will then be expanded to
include more languages such as English, Japanese, Chinese etc.
Mr Patee, said, "Travelers are rewriting their
bucket lists and seeking out cool alternative experiences and
fresh ways to travel, see and do things. So, we are starting by
building experiences from scratch and taking a different approach
to destination marketing."
The company has partered with the luxurious Dusit
Thani Maldives as its first destination and will add Japan in the near future.
Mr Patee said that the company is
negotiating with other leading travel suppliers, hoteliers and airlines
to create additional experience-based promotions.
"We are delighted to be working with Dusit Thani
as a hospitality partner. Dusit Maldives is tucked into a perfect
spot for lovers and with multiple airlines now connecting to the
heart of the Maldives, we will easily open up opportunities to
make this dream a reality for many more people from Thailand to
enjoy," he said.
