The Facebook LIVE launch, schedule for Tuesday 24 March 2020 at 8 pm (Bangkok time), will leverage the social media platform to generate additional mainstream media interest and get the word out to the global travel community.

Really Really Cool (RRC) CEO Patee Sarasin, said, "The key reason why we are launching Really Really Cool application now is to help communities, small travel-related businesses including everything from attractions, restaurants, cooking classes, ski destinations, to anyone that offers an experience to customers when they travel to any given destination covered.

"These SMEs or businesses are going through a difficult time due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) situation that is happening around the world. We are looking for any way possible to assist them in this time of need."

The application, branded Really Really Cool, offers free entry for all travel-related businesses to sign up. It is meant to hopefully create another platform that will help generate business and bounce back when the coronavirus dies down.

The content on the RRC application currently includes over 500,000 products and services from third parties, SMEs, local businesses, and is constantly growing. A 'Digital Concierge' assists those looking for a 'really cool experience' be it home or abroad. Users can wish list items, see the RRC top picks for really cool content, get deals, or get access to other exclusive content.
