BANGKOK (NNT) – The Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) has said it would discuss plans to upgrade the Amazing Thailand Marathon in 2023 with the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) and the private sector.

The event, inaugurated by Tourism and Sports Minister Pipat Ratchakitprakarn, began at the Rajamangala National Stadium and traversed several of Bangkok’s most recognizable landmarks, including the Victory Monument, the Rama 8 bridge, the old parliament building and Benchamabophit Marble Temple.
