Believe in Thailand 2011
Developed by Thailand Convention and Exhibition Bureau, the campaign is aimed at restoring Thailand's image as Asia's preferred MICE destination with close cooperation from all parties concerned, 'Believe in Thailand' 2011 was born out of the roadmap white paper to reassure international operators' confidence towards Thai MICE industry. It will highlight the country's three major strong points which cover 'countless business opportunities' it can offer, 'renowned hospitality' and its 'great variety of amazing tourist attractions'. TCEB will be using cluster marketing as an approach to promote MICE industry in Thailand in line with this campaign.
'Investment worthiness' will also be an additional appeal and Thailand has long proved to have a value-for-money aspect that attracts convention and exhibition organizers. It is hoped these organizers, as inspired by the campaign, will help bring more MICE events and travelers to the Kingdom of Thailand.

The Dragons Descend
A more scientific fact is that the limestone in this bay has gone through 500 million years of formation in different conditions and environments. The evolution of the karst in this bay has taken 20 million years under the impact of the tropical wet climate. The geo-diversity of the environment in the area has created biodiversity including a tropical evergreen biosystem, oceanic and sea shore biosystem, similar to Phang Bay in south Thailand.
Ha Long Bay, a UNESCO World Heritage site some 3 hours drive from Hanoi is best planned as an overnight cruise part of a program to Vietnam before or after a Hanoi stay. Scenery of some 2,000 limestone islets dotting the bay against sunset and floating villages on emerald water make for a relaxing portion of a program, with full board service on luxurious junks. Kayaking, cave exploring and sunrise Tai Chi on top deck are some activity options. Venue for dinner can be Trong Cave with quality catering.
Vietnam has been recognized as a favorable destination for incentive and group travel programs in its own right, and can be quite suitably combined with Thailand, to take advantage of convenient flight connections.
