The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) has announced a new campaign called “ Tourist of Thailand,” where one lucky person will get to travel around the country for 4 months with a spending budget of THB 500,000 (USD 14,624).

According to the TAT, a lucky winner will be announced on 28 May, with the last day of application submissions being 14 May.

The chosen “Tourist of Thailand” will receive THB 126,000 (USD 3,685) a month to cover all their expenses and the winner will be expected to document (photos and videos) every day on their journey to promote tourism in the country, reports Thaiger.

For applicants who are able to make it to the interview stage, the TAT will award them with travel vouchers, as there will only be one winner for “Tourist of Thailand”.

All applicants are required to have Thai citizenship, must be at least 20 years of age, must be able to capture and edit photos or videos, must have several social media platforms to post tourism content, and must be able to travel according to the TAT’s calendar.

The itinerary of the trip has not yet been revealed, nor whether the applicant would be responsible for planning their own trip.

Along with the “Tourist of Thailand” campaign, the TAT also recently announced the launch of ‘Single Journey Season 2’ in association with Tinder, a campaign aimed at promoting travel for single people.
