Hearing The Sunshine By Amazing Thailand

by admin — Categories: News and Update — 16 Comments


I just found very impress short film named “Hearing The Sunshine” by the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT), which is a new short film that accentuates the emotional appeal that Thailand has for visitors.

Following the launch of the “Most Amazing Show On Earth” campaign, the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) now introduces “Hearing The Sunshine By Amazing Thailand,” a film about journeying through Thailand based on the collective experiences of real travellers.

In the recruitment phase, the TAT sent out an open call for submissions from anyone who had visited Thailand to upload their “most amazing moments in Thailand” with others via social media.

Now the second phase, “Hearing The Sunshine By Amazing Thailand” centers around two travellers, a sound artist and a photographer, each of whom have their own unique ways of interacting with and interpreting the world around them. The film follows each of them on their separate journeys through Thailand to their intersections featuring different regions and provinces in the country, which allow them to share amazing moments together as their relationship develops.

The film notably departs from past communication aimed at an international market and offers a new way to discover the myriad of experiences Thailand can offer in a more emotional and personal way. By having a real story from real visitors, the TAT hopes to be able to give prospective visitors a diverse and realistic portrait of tourism of the whole country through visitors’ eyes rather than an organization.

World Record for Thai Massage

World Record for Thai Massage

The “World Record for Thai Massage” project, is set to draw at least 840 pairs of contestants, hence beating the current world record of 232 pairs massaging en masse set by Australia two years ago, and will be held in Chiang Mai, Ubon Ratchathani, Surat Thani and Phuket.

Chiang Mai provincial public health officer Wattana Kanchanakamon said at the launch today that the project, a collaboration between the Public Health Ministry, the Department of Export Promotion, the Tourism Authority of Thailand, and THAI, aimed to promote Thai massage to the world.

The bid, which would raise cultural awareness of Thai culture just like Muay Thai, Thai food, Thai architecture and the wai, the gesture that pays respect to others, would also promote health tourism in Thailand.

The project, launched at Chiang Mai’s Royal Park Rajapruek with 199 pairs massaging en masse, will also be held in Ubon Ratchathani with an expected 214 pairs, then Surat Thani with 400 pairs and Phuket with 500 pairs, with the closing ceremony to be held in Bangkok, he said.

Since 2004, Thailand has aspired to be the medical hub of Asia in three areas; medical treatment, healthcare services and herbal products. In Thailand, there are 220 certified institutes teaching massage and 500,000 individuals have gone through massage training programs.

In Chiang Mai alone, 20 institutes produce 4,000 graduates per year. Chiang Mai has 49 healthcare service establishments, 93 “massage for health” shops and six “massage for beauty and cosmetic” shops, which generate about Bt1 billion per year.
