TAT supports Miss World Australia NSW state final
There was much excitement at the Sir Stamford Circular Quay in Sydney on Friday where 20 Miss World Australia NSW State finalists were competing for the final six positions in order to attend the Miss World Australia finals in Melbourne.
This prestigious event was well supported by the finalists’ friends and families and Tourism Authority of Thailand was a main sponsor in conjunction with THAI Airways International.
Contestants were not judged on their appearances alone, the contestants had also been proactive within their own local communities across New South Wales raising money for charity. Some of the contestants had raised in excess of ten thousand dollars alone for their charity.
“It was a very impressive effort by the young Australian contenders who are well educated and articulate young ladies,” TAT Sydney assistant director Mrs Nanthasiri Phakphiankoon said.
“It is pleasing to see today’s youth so active and caring within their communities and Tourism Authority of Thailand is very much looking forward to the winner becoming the Tourism Authority of Thailand Brand Ambassador in Australia.”
The Miss World finals will be held at the Palladium at Crown in Melbourne on Friday, 22nd of July.
In line with the event and to mark the occasion of Her Majesty Queen Sirikit’s birthday, the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) has designated August 2016 as a month for female travellers.
For the first time ever, TAT is launching a campaign to attract local and international female travellers to enjoy some of the country’s many attractions with a wide range of activities, special offers, discounts and privileges, whether travelling alone or with groups of friends, across the month of August.
Miss World Australia will act as the TAT Brand Ambassador in Australia and will visit Thailand between 31 July – 7 August to attend the Opening Ceremony of Women’s Journey to Thailand 2016 before touring Bangkok, Hua Hin, Chiang Rai and Phuket.
The initiative covers five different promotional concepts:
- Beautiful Look
- Beautiful Shape
- Beautiful Mind
- Beautiful Retreat
- Beautiful Experience
In conjunction with the Amazing Thailand Grand Sale, which runs from 15 June to 31 August, women will be offered a wide range of offers and chances to win prizes.
In their Spend & Win campaign, for every 500 Baht spent, women will be awarded 10 chances to win a grand prize of 365 days travel in Thailand.
In addition to this, there will be daily offers at all 500 participating retailers, restaurants and attractions, with a total of 1500 special offers each month, and they will also be rewarded for shopping and dining with free cash vouchers.
Women will also be offered exclusive discounts on spa treatments, hotel stays, entry to attractions such as Chiang Mai Zoo and Underwater World, and wide range of retailers and restaurants. For the golfers out there, women will also be gifted complimentary green fees during August at seven participating golf clubs.
“Increasingly women are coming to Thailand in groups or as solo travellers and expect to find activities and attractions geared to their needs. So, this campaign will broaden their recognition on how Thailand can cater for a great experience to female travellers like nowhere else,” TAT Governor Mr. Yuthasak Supasorn said
