The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) has announced the names of four happy heart couples wining its “Dream Honeyteering Contest” and receiving a unique honeymoon trip to Thailand for seven days plus an opportunity to engage in local volunteer activities and a honeymoon photography portrait session.
The two-month online social media campaign attracted 190 couples from all over the world. Under the “Honeyteering – We got so much love to give!” concept, participating couples shared their dream of a honeymoon plus volunteering in their desired destination in Thailand.
The four happy heart couples have won the rewards to experience the unique honeyteering trip of their dream in Thailand. The prize for each couple includes return international air tickets from their departure city, six nights’ accommodation at a luxury hotel in Thailand, all meals, volunteer activities in their destination of choice, sightseeing tours and transfers.
The choice of destinations offered for the participating couples included Hua Hin, Chiang Mai, Phuket and Ko Samui. For volunteer activity, the choices were teaching English conversation in a local school, working in a local community, protecting the marine environment or helping on a nature conservation project.
Mr. Sugree Sithivanich, Deputy Governor for Marketing Communications of the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) said, “It’s overwhelming to see that our “Dream Honeyteering Contest” online campaign is a huge success. Weddings and honeymoons is one of our four key niche markets in the 2014 marketing strategy. The campaign is also in line with our plans to leverage social media as well as promote volunteering tourism in Thailand.”
