Cape Panwa Hotel, Phuket welcomed the 20 Miss Thailand World 2013 finalists who will spend three days promoting local tourism in Phuket. Kasemkij Hotels, owner and operator of Cape Panwa Hotel, mentioned it was an honour to host the event and its planned activities that are designed to promote philanthropic endeavors, tourism and culture in line with this years slogan “True ASEAN beauty on the global stage”.
Mr. Poomiphat Navanukroh, Travel Industry Group Director of Kasemkij Hotels said, “We are extremely proud to once again host the Miss Thailand World Training Camp at Cape Panwa Hotel. Previously, we hosted the event at Kantary Beach Hotel, Khao Lak in 2011 and at Kantary Hills Hotel, Chiang Mai in 2012. This year, the 20 finalists will be staying with us from March 12 to 14, in order to prepare for the final competition. And as Phuket is such a splendid location, both naturally and culturally, I believe each contestant will be very impressed and leave with many good memories and experiences.”
“The Miss Thailand World contest is a very popular event, followed by millions of television viewers across the country. The presence of the contestants here in Phuket will give local tourism an extra boost, even though our southern island city is well known among Thai and foreign tourists. Additionally, The Absolute Suite, one of the most luxurious penthouse suites in Phuket, will provide the perfect backdrop for the contestant interviews. The interviews will be aired on TV CH3 later in March as part of the Miss Thailand World Variety Program, which will hopefully attract more visitors to Phuket during the upcoming Songkran Festive Season,” commented Poomiphat.
Cape Panwa Hotel, Phuket General Manager Philipp S. Frickhinger added he was certain that the visiting contestants will be impressed with the hotel and its facilities. “Everything has been specially prepared for the Miss Thailand World 2013 Finalists including the famous swimsuit photo shoot which will be shot on the hotel’s beautiful white sandy beach,” he said.
“Over the next three days at Cape Panwa Hotel, the contestants will not only learn everything they need to know to compete in the pageant, but they will also help to promote Phuket tourism and take part in philanthropic activities ”, Philipp concluded.
