Category: Tourism, Posted:05 Jul 2013 | 07:29 am

Thailand's Khiri Voyages is set to hook up Thai tourists into space within the next twelve months.
Khiri is the exclusive agent for the Thai market for the Space Expedition Corporation which will blast off from one of two venues, either in the US or Curacao.
The cost for the trip is set at THB4.2 million but a training course must be undertaken in the Netherlands prior to the space journey.
