Mr.TassaponBijleveld, CEO of Thai AirAsia, remarked that AirAsia is resolute in its drive to continually add routes to China to enhance the Thai and Chinese economy. At the end of 2013, AirAsia will open bookings for its latest route “Bangkok-Changsha”, further enriching its flight hub in Bangkok (Don Mueang) in response to rapidly growing traveler numbers.
“Changsha” is AirAsia’s newest destination in China and was chosen due to its business and tourism capabilities, which have been consistently growing. AirAsia is sure that Changsha will be another impressive travel destination, especially for film fans as highlights of the city are the Natural World Heritage site, Zhangjiajie National Park, the filming location of the sci-fi epic Avatar, which hosts real world thrills such as a soaring 7 kilometer cable car ride to a range of thousands of narrow sandstone mountains. An all glass walk scaling one of the park’s many cliffs is another heart-pounding experience. Adventurers can also enjoy a drive up Tianmenshan Mountain, with its 99 suspenseful turns, which lead to an awe-inspiring gate to the heavens, or a stroll through Yellow Dragon Cave, where they can witness the beauty of naturally grown stalactite and stalagmite. Those looking for a more relaxed stay with plenty of photo opportunities plus chic, well-priced hotels and a riverside atmosphere meanwhile can head to Fenghuang Ancient Town.
“We are convinced that with Changsha’s potential and AirAsia’s low fare daily flights, departing from Bangkok early in the morning, travelers will receive the utmost in both value and convenience. AirAsia also plans to provide constant promotions throughout the year so that its customers may have every opportunity to fly to a new experience” Mr.Tassapon remarked.
