CPN with KLOOK to launch ‘City Bus Transfer’

Central Pattana plc, is joining hands with KLOOK, a leading travel e-commerce platform, to continue boosting tourism by launching the ‘City Bus Transfer’ to provide a shuttle bus service from Bangkok to Pattaya to facilitate and fulfil the needs of foreign tourists.

Dr.Nattakit Tangpoonsinthana, Executive Vice President of Marketing for Central Pattana plc, said: “According to the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT), more than 6.4 million foreign tourists entered Thailand in the first quarter of 2023 attracting more than 2.5 billion baht in tourism revenue into the country. The top five foreign tourist nationalities visiting Thailand are from Malaysia, Russia, China, South Korea and India, and the TAT forecasts that Chinese tourists will rank first, with at least 5 million people visiting Thailand.

Bangkok is the most-searched destination, followed by Pattaya, Chiang Mai, Krabi and Phuket. In order to support the increasing number of tourists visiting Thailand from around the world, Central Pattana is joining hands with KLOOK to offer space in our shopping centers in strategic locations that are very popular among tourists such as centralwOrld, Central Village and Central Pattaya to operate shuttle bus service points in order to facilitate transportation.

The service is easy to book, fast and convenient, with a high level of safety. This collaboration is part of the ‘Stimulate Spending & Spread Income’ strategy and highlights the role of our shopping centers as hubs that connect the retail and tourism ecosystem to complement the whole tourism system.”

The bus service is very convenient with ample space, comfortable seats and reliable drivers for a safe journey. The tickets can be conveniently purchased online and passengers can book and purchase a ticket on the day they wish to travel by simply confirming the order two hours in advance.
