Agoda has collaborated with vlogger Nuseir Yassin, the owner of popular Facebook page ‘Nas Daily’, to release a promotional video on tourism in Bangkok that highlights why “Bangkok has something for everybody.”
In the video, Agoda invites Nuseir and his mother to Bangkok to find out themselves why the city attracts over 20 million visitors annually. After their adventure, Nusier and his mother sum up their trip with three answers to why Bangkok is one of the top destinations for travelers around the world: good price, good food, and good people. As part of the campaign, Nas Daily also posted a link to special booking page where visitors will be able to save up to US$100 for a booking made on the Agoda website until September.
According to Agoda’s booking data in 2019, Bangkok is the number one destination for Agoda travelers from Bangladesh, Sweden, and Switzerland. In addition, China, South Korea, Singapore, Malaysia, and Japan are the highest ranked origin markets in 2019 for travelers to Bangkok. The United States is the only country outside of Asia to make it on the top 10 list of origin markets for three consecutive years.
Earlier this year, Agoda appointed Ittai Chorev as its chief marketing officer. In his new role, he oversees all of Agoda’s global marketing functions as part of his expanded portfolio, including performance marketing (SEM/PPC, MSE, display), CRM, pricing and loyalty, brand marketing and consumer public relations. He is based out of Thailand.
