On July 20th 2010, 30 final candidates of Miss Thailand World 2010 contest arrived in Phuket. They are staying at Cape Panwa Hotel during their Phuket visit from July 20th-23rd.
After reaching the hotel, all 30 candidates attended a press conference led by Bhumipat Nawanukroa, the Director of Cape Hotel Collection Group and Nawat Itsarakraisin, the Manager of Miss Thailand World 2010.
Bhumipat said that he was pleased to welcome all final candidates to stay and do activities in the hotel. Last year, the competition used Canary Hills Hotel in Chiang Mai, which was a hotel in their group, as a place for activities in the final round as well. Cape Panwa Hotel was also used as the activity base for a Belgium beauty competition last year. Being a base for beauty competitions makes people know more about the hotel.
Apart from these contestants, there were often both Thai and internationally famous celebrities and stars checking in to the hotel, which helps people recognize Phuket as a world class tourism destination with world class accommodation, he said.
During their stay in Phuket, the candidates are visiting Baan Lam Sai School. They would do many activities that benefit the school such as painting, decorating the school’s library, the ceiling/roof, the playground, scraping/tapping their rubber trees, and generating money for the school. During their stay, they would also visit the Two Heroines Monument, Phuket Town and worship at the Big Buddha on Naka Kerd hill, before recording videos and swimming suit shows in the hotel.
