The Tourism Authority of Thailand’s (TAT) new communication message of ‘Open to the New Shades’ is the focus of the third annual TAT Newsroom Thailand Blogger competition, which is open to entries now.
Mr. Yuthasak Supasorn, TAT Governor said: “Bloggers can share their experiences in Thailand with a real sense of passion and thus inspire their audiences to visit the kingdom. This is a trend we very much support, in the way it can show the world’s travellers there is so much to see and do in ‘Amazing Thailand’ either for the first time or from a new perspective.”
Bloggers entering the 3rd TAT Newsroom Thailand Blogger competition will find plenty of inspiration in the ‘Open to the New Shades’ concept, in preparing their submissions.
Your entry could be in the area of Gastronomy, for example, exploring the endless array of experiences from delicious street food to fine-dining restaurants to cooking classes to intriguing food tours.
Arts and Crafts is another element of the new communication campaign, with local wisdom, fascinating festivals and world-class artisans to be found throughout Thailand.
In terms of Nature and Beaches, Thailand has stunning landscapes to discover from the North to the South and West to East. The beaches of the South are renowned as being among the most beautiful in Asia.
Culture is another fascinating facet that bloggers can explore, whether in the area of religion, sports or the arts for example, or to build on memorable experiences enjoyed on earlier visits.
Way of Life is another element of the ‘Open to the New Shades’ campaign, unique Thai local experiences, whether that’s the warmth and hospitality of a farm tour or homestay or a mind-boggling exploration of a bustling street market.
Bloggers can submit entries to TAT Newsroom Thailand blogger competition between 1 January and 15 February, 2018. The voting period is from 1 January to 15 March, 2018, with the winners’ announcement to be made in the last week of March.
As in previous years, the winners will be treated to a return airfare and an all-expenses-paid trip in Thailand. This time around, the trip routing will be highlighting the ‘Colours of the East’, combining the capital Bangkok with the cultural charms and natural wonders of Rayong, Chanthaburi and Trat, and take place in May 2018.
