A government ministry well-known for oftentimes baffling publicity stunts, named The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT), is at it again. This week TAT launched a new line of promotional paper bags to promote “Thainess”, which feature a traditional Siamese cat on both sides.
The cat is of the Wichian Mat breed and will be on both large and small bags to be distributed to various government offices and companies wanting to use the bags for promotional purposes. At travel shows and tourism road shows starting from August 2013, TAT will be giving The Siamese cat Amazing Thailand bags.
