Chiang Mai Zoo’s director announces new marketing strategies
Following the recent birthday celebrations at Chiang Mai Zoo for the female
panda Lin Hui, Thanaphat Pongpamorn, the zoo’s director, announced to reporters
that 5 rai of land has been set a side for a new attraction, the Adventure Zoo,
which will focus on the prehistoric era of the dinosaurs. The project will be
launched later this month.
New marketing strategies aimed at increasing the number of visitors to the zoo
will also include “Amazing Zoo Star,” featuring a pair of pandas gifted by
China, a Cape fur seal and Humboldt Penguins. Another innovation, “Amazing Only
One in Thailand,” will present Kali, an Indian rhinoceros gifted to His Majesty
King Bhumibol in 1986 by the then King of Nepal.
