Thailand partners with Tinder for matchmaking trips

The Tourism Authority of Thailand is partnering with dating app Tinder to offer tour packages specifically for matchmaking purposes.

Though Thailand’s borders are technically open to foreign tourists — at least those who are willing to quarantine in a hotel room for two weeks and pay for a visa application — the “Single Journey” initiative is aimed at locals as a way to encourage domestic travel.

There are plans for nine itineraries throughout the country, which will be launched with three pilot trips. The first, on December 20, is a cruise along Bangkok’s Chao Phraya River for up to 100 singletons.

The day-long experience includes sightseeing, dinner and a talk from a Feng Shui expert “who will share tips on how to pay homage to Buddha and ask for blessings,” which should invariably give tongue-tied daters something to talk about.

The other two pilot experiences are a beachside party and concert in Phuket and a train trip to a dam.
