Following Singapore, Bangkok is the second city in Southeast Asia to offer a Go City Pass to individual or group travellers. Asia is a priority for expansion with the possible addition of Kuala Lumpur in a near future.
After Shanghai and Hong Kong in 2018, Singapore in late 2019, Britain-based Leisure Pass Group launched at the end of January for travellers to Bangkok a mobile-first, sightseeing pass experience with Go Bangkok, Go City’s latest launch. This flexible pass offers great savings of up to 63% on entry to 23 of the city’s most popular attractions and experiences. Attractions include the Grand Palace and Emerald Buddha Walking Tour and Damnoensaduak Floating Market, Chao Phraya River Dinner Cruise plus more unique experiences like the Tuk Tuk Night Tour and Go Bangkok Bicycle Tour.
With the Go Bangkok pass, travellers only need one digital pass to enter all attractions, paying nothing at the gate and saving up to 63% compared to buying tickets separately. There are Pass types to suit every budget, giving travellers the ability to personalize the pass by choosing the activities and sites they’re most excited about.
Two options for the Go Bangkok pass, each one designed for a different type of travel style:
All-Inclusive: Sightseers who want to save big and tackle as much of the city as possible can opt for this pass, available to purchase for a span of two to five days. This is a great option for travelers who like to be spontaneous on vacation, since they can decide which and how many attractions to visit that day. A 2-day adult pass starts at US$113 and a 2-day child pass starts at US$96.
Explorer: This pass is designed for travelers who prefer to take their time and explore a few select attractions. Available for three to seven attractions which travelers have the flexibility to either choose before heading out on vacation or plan once they arrive. A 3-choice adult pass starts at US$72.50 and a 3-choice child pass starts at US$61.
The Go Bangkok pass is easy to use and can be purchased either online at www.gocity.com or within the Go City Pass app. Once you have your pass, you’re good to go. The app helps guide you to get the most out of your trip with the Build An itinerary feature helping travellers plan their break, the Interests section recommending activities personalized to their likes and preferences and GPS capability to recommend nearby attractions once sightseers have finished the last experience. The Go Singapore pass offers over 30 attractions and sightseeing with similar options.
“Go City helps travellers have the best city break they’ve ever had. This is an exciting time in the market as we continue to strive for growth and innovation in our products. We are thrilled to add Bangkok to our expanding portfolio so visitors can make their trip even better. Bangkok is one of the most energetic, dynamic and exciting cities in the world, so it’s no surprise it’s also one of the most visited. Tourist arrivals for Thailand hit over 39 million in 2019, an increase from 38 million in 2018 with a majority of them visiting Bangkok,” remarked Jon Owen, CEO, Leisure Pass Group.
Significantly extending Leisure Pass Group’s addressable market by investing in customer acquisition in Asia is also a priority. “We are significantly expanding our product portfolio in Asia having launched Go Shanghai in 2018 and Go Singapore last October. We will be launching a Pattaya add-on to this pass, as well as more key cities around the region in the coming months,” added Jon Owen. Kuala Lumpur is also under consideration for a similar pass.
