El Al Israel Airlines Ltd. (TASE: ELAL) has announced that it is launching package tours to the Hua Hin coastal resort in Thailand in cooperation with Eshet Tours. The package deals will include an El Al flight from Tel Aviv to Bangkok and back and transportation on the two and a half hour journey to Hua Hin on the Malay peninsula, 200 kilometers southwest of Bankgkok.
This is the first of several destinations throughout Thailand that El Al and Eshet will be offering. Thailand is an extremely popular destination for Israelis but El Al marketing manager Einat Yanai stresses few in Israel have heard of Hua Hin, and that is likely to make the packages attractive.
The region around Hua Hin is rich in beaches, nature reserves, markets and resort attractions including the King of Thailand's summer palace, which was built in the 1920s.
El Al and Eshet are offering flights, transport and seven night five star hotel packages for $1,400 per person in March, May and June and $1,600 in the peak winter season from December to February as well as during holidays and the summer. For an extra $50 per night per person, the package can be extended to allow time in Bangkok.
