Time to Explore Rayong

Living in Thailand was getting very excited, so it was now time to explore the places around in the Rayong Province.

As there were no winners in the popular vote category, with none of the entrants receiving 5,000 votes, the winners were selected based on the following criteria: meeting the blogger’s social profile and completing the entry requirements (total 20 points) judged by the TAT Newsroom Team, and the entry depicting a positive image of Thailand and being beneficial to Thai tourism (total 30 points) judged by the TAT International PR Division.

The winners mentioned above must verify their identity within seven (7) days of the release date of this announcement (30 June 2019) by submitting proof of participation (the social media post sent to the public) and a copy of their passport to email: [email protected] from Monday to Friday between the hours of 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. (Thai time).

Non-compliance to the one-week time frame or being unable to travel during the proposed period of the prize winner’s trip will result in prize forfeiture and an alternate runner-up being invited.

The six winners of the second TAT Newsroom “Blogger Thailand” competition will enjoy an exclusive four-day trip reflecting Thailand’s ‘Open to the New Shades’ campaign, scheduled for 25-28 July, 2019, to Prachin Buri, Nakhon Nayok and Nakhon Ratchasima provinces as well as Khao Yai National Park, which borders all three of these provinces.
