Remember how much I LOVE social media? Well, Amanda and I took a shot at a social media competition called "Ultimate Thailand Explorers," hosted by the Tourism Authority of Thailand. Here's the description:
The Ultimate Thailand Explorer event was created by the Tourism Authority of Thailand in order to publicize Thailand’s five top tourist destinations: Bangkok, Phuket, Pattaya, Chiang Mai, and Koh Samui. Teams of foreign visitors, selected by judges and public voters, will explore the diverse attractions and activities at these destinations and then share this information online in order to showcase the unique reasons these destinations have earned numerous international awards and inspire other travelers to visit Thailand and experience it all for themselves.
The five teams competing in the Ultimate Thailand Explorer event will have six days to travel around their selected destinations and “explore” the many attractions, sights, activities, and other features found there. To promote the destinations, the contestants are required to share their daily experiences with a global audience by posting photos, videos, blogs, and travel stories with social media tools in order to inspire other global travelers to learn more about and plan to visit those destinations. After a period of online voting, the team that receives the most votes from around the world will be named the Ultimate Thailand Explorers and will receive many fabulous prizes, including:
- $10,000 USD.
- A holiday package in Thailand valued at $3,000 USD.
- Other prizes worth $2,000 USD
