Experience Thailand with Mario Maurer Campaign by the Tourism Authority of Thailand
Today we have a very special treat for you as we will be sharing with you an exclusive interview with none other than Thai superstar Mario Maurer.
Now for those of you who may not be all that familiar with Thai popular culture, Mario Maurer is a renowned model, actor and singer, best known for his films The Love of Siam, First Love and Pee Mak, which is the highest grossing Thai film of all time. He is also part of a group called 4+1 Channel 3 Superstar.
As well as being hugely popular within Thailand, he also has a growing army of fans in China and throughout ASEAN. Because of his enormous popularity in the region, the Tourism Authority of Thailand have decided to once again join forces with Mario in a continued effort to entice young people from China, Indonesia, the Philippines and Vietnam to come and visit Thailand in 2016.
Meet and Greet with Mario Maurer
Mario will be very hands-on with the campaign throughout the year and will be visiting all four countries to meet and greet his fans, personally encouraging them to come and experience all the fun and magic that Thailand has to offer. He will also be hosting special press and fan events within Thailand and will be taking part in an exclusive Men’s Health photo shoot in China to help promote the initiative.

China is already the largest market for Thai tourism, with 7.9 million visitors in 2015. It is also one of the fastest growing, as in 2016 a massive 10.6 million Chinese are expected to visit the Kingdom. With Mario acting as a tourism ambassador for Thailand it is hoped that these numbers can be boosted further still, making Thailand the destination of choice for young travellers in China and throughout the region.
