The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) has launched online campaign Discover the Other You, giving away seven-day packages to winners.

The ‘Discover the Other You’ campaign encourages visitors to learn more about Thailand.

The aim is to promote Thailand among visitors via traditional Thai arts including muay Thai, Thai cuisine and traditional Thai message. The winners will receive hands-on experiences plus tours and seven-day hotel packages in Thailand.

The contest is open to anyone to register through www.discovertheotheryou.com. Choose one of the three classes and wait for the results of the lucky draw.

The last date for registration is May 31 and the winners for the three classes will be announced on the website on June 5.

According to the TAT, the value of the prize for each winner is about US$10,000 (310,000 baht), covering a seven-day package for two, six-night accommodation, workshop fees, sightseeing tours, meals, transportation, return air tickets for two and US$2,000 (62,000 baht) in cash.

The winners must claim their prize before the end of October.

In addition, the TAT has also joined hands with several parties to offer special discounts for accommodation and packages for six classes of Thai kick boxing, Thai cooking, Thai massage, rice farming, craft and weaving, and Thai performing arts.

The TAT expects the campaign will lure more tourists to Thailand and attract them to learn more about locals and their culture.
