84 Perspectives of Thailand in Women's Eyes (Part I)
On this occasion a mega familiarization project was created for worldwide media with the most appropriate theme of 84 Perspectives of Thailand in Women's Eyes.
Four tailor-designed trips were operated by CDM to the main regions of the Thai Kingdom, participated by 84 writers, bloggers, and photographers from 32 countries. Loads of attractive photos were posted on Instagram with the caption #84perspectivesofthailand and also on other media.
Highlights of the northern trip, Chiang Mai and Lampang, were visits to Queen Sirikit Botanical Garden. With 1,000 hectares of combined landscaped and natural vegetation, it is the first botanical park of international standard in Thailand, and the center of flora for study, research, and recreation for the public. Comprised of many Lanna temples, craft villages, and royal-initiated projects which are sustainability champions in their own right, attempts here are made to transform opium cultivation to other harmless but profitable and sustainable farming initiatives.
Modes of transportation experienced were biking, horse drawn carriage, and ‘song taew’– a converted pick-up truck and ‘Formula Hmong’– a thrilling downhill race on a wooden cart normally celebrated on the 4th festive day of the New Year.
Members of the press who participated in the Central Thailand trip experienced traditional arts and crafts by artisans in Phetchaburi and Hua Hin at the Hua Hin Artist Village and a weaving center.
They also learned about sustainability projects such as an ecosystem learning center, agro tourism site at a rehabilitated forest, and a special visit to a Sea Salt Spa facility.
Both trips featured meals and special functions with deep cultural elements and folk entertainment which truly represent the locations in a most genuine fashion.
Thailand offers a plethora of experiential activities and attractions which are always of interest to women and men alike. Incentive travel and special interest programs can certainly feature some of the unique indigenous attractions on visits to Thailand that will be fondly remembered for a long time.
