Located on the 3rd floor of Concourse D and opposite gate D7, the lounge can accommodate up to 120 economy-class passengers and up to 50 business-class passengers. Hosted by the Tourism and Sports Ministry, the 37th edition of the forum will highlight Thailand as a potential hub for promoting sustainable tourism in Asean countries and a gateway to travel in the region as a single tourism destination. The privilege is offered to kids and youths aged under 15 years old. Sumet said laws are still required to ensure the safety of ride-share customers.
Sumet Ongkittikul, director of Transportation and Logistics Policy at the Thailand Development Research Institute, said the use of new technology to manage and improve taxi-service quality had to be implemented along with strict law enforcement and strict driver screening. But he said that about 35,000 out of 55,000 taxis in Bangkok will be removed from the roads by the end of the year since taxis can not legally be older than nine years old. Ekkachai said the government was reviewing a proposal to equip all newly registered taxis with the system while giving owners of existing taxis two or three years to follow suit. There are two choices of free tours; Heritage Tour and the City Sights Tour. Airlines update Singapore Airlines has joined hands with Changi airport and the Singapore Tourism Board to continue its free Singapore tours for transit passengers.
The system will identify the taxi driver, the route the vehicle goes and the speed it is going, he said. The campaign launched since last year aims to encourage travellers to get the taste of the country if they have at least 5. The forum is expected to have 2,000 participants including ministers and heads of national tourism organisations in Asean countries and also from China, Japan, South Korea, India and Russia.

The Asean Tourism Forum will be organised during Jan 22-26 at Chiang Mai International Exhibition and Convention Centre.
The Land Transport Department will launch a new app on Jan 25 aimed at improving safety for passengers. Riders will pay an extra 20 baht for using the app to call a cab, he added. There also will be bilateral meetings between dialogue partners, meetings for Asean sellers and buyers from Europe, the Americas, Asia Pacific and the Middle East, and the Travel Exchange trade fair to promote destinations in the region. In case of passengers need help, an emergency button will be right on the passenger seat to push. To join the free tour, transit passengers have to book their seats one hour before the tour starts at the Free Singapore Tour Registration booths located near Transfer Lounge F in Terminal 2 and Transfer Lounge A in Terminal 3.
Location, speed, engine performance, driver identification, meter fare and booking information would all be recorded. In case of passengers need help, an emergency button will be right on the passenger seat to push. The app is developed by King Mongkut's Institute of Technology Ladkrabang. Free Ride The Transport Company will offer free rides for kids during Jan 12-14 to celebrate Children's Day on Saturday. The Director-General added operators of Grab Bar and Uber can also join the program but they must comply with the requirements.
Movenpick has signed a contract to manage a hotel in central Vietnam. The system will identify the taxi driver, the route the vehicle goes and the speed it is going, he said. The resort is located on Lang Co beach in Thua Thien-Hue Province on the Central Coast region of Vietnam and about 30km north of Danang. The resort will be open in the fourth quarter of this year. Despite their added convenience and assurance that no destination will be refused, he said, the drivers might not undergo strict screening. A special team will be set up to bring any taxi driver who has misbehaved or committed serious offences to justice.
Other facilities will include two restaurants, meeting rooms, a ballroom, swimming pool with a pool bar, Kids' Club, spa and fitness centre. Like Uber or Grab, the app will feature taxi booking reservations and evaluate drivers. The tour service is available from 9am to 6pm. Passengers can board the cruise from Chiang Rai's Chiang Khong district to Luang Prabang, Laos.

He said all new taxis registered after Nov 9, 2017, were required to take part in the scheme and have all the equipment installed. They can ride any classes of inter-provincial buses to any destination without paying for tickets. Called Mekong Kingdoms Cruises, the service is designed for two to 26 passengers with choices of a two-cabin vessel to a 13-cabin barge. Passengers have complained constantly to the department - and traffic radio stations - about drivers refusing to take them where they want to go. A video camera inside will send real-time information to the taxi service centre, he said. The service hours are from 4.
Taxi operators who wish to join the program must have credible business qualifications. There are seven components in the proposed system, he said, involving the taking of photos, identifying locations, summoning the taxi, monitoring driver behaviour, lodging complaints, an emergency alert button, and assessing both the driver and privately run taxi-information centres. Bangkok Airways has launched its new lounge for international passengers at Suvarnabhumi airport. Users would be able to summon a taxi from any affiliated service and lodge complaints with authorities, Ekkachai said. Availability of seats is on a first-come-first-served basis.
