AlFalasi at ‘Women’s Journey Thailand’ forum

Arab celebrities visit Thailand to celebrate female travellers

BANGKOK, August 8, 2018

Emirati media personality, Taim AlFalasi, and Iranian actress and Unicef ambassador, Mahtab Keramati, joined dozens of celebrities from across the globe to celebrate female travellers this week in Thailand.

More than 60 female celebrities, key opinion leaders, bloggers and journalists headed to Thailand to celebrate pioneering female travellers. Amongst a number of other celebrities, AlFalasi and Keramati both experienced Thailand and many of its female-friendly activities first-hand.

AlFalasi, who was recently named in Forbes’ ’30 under 30’ Arabs list earlier this year, runs her own online radio channel and several food and beverage start-ups in the UAE. During her visit to Thailand, she experienced the buzzing capital, Bangkok, and the hidden gem resort of Hua Hin where she took part in cooking classes and visited several markets. Keramati, who was appointed as a Unicef National Ambassador in Iran 12 years ago, spent five days exploring Bangkok and Phuket. AlFalasi and Keramati explored several family and female-friendly sights as well as wellness-orientated activities.

Both women joined a number of other pioneering females at a spectacular event called ‘Women’s Journey Thailand’, which was organised by Tourism Authority Thailand and represented trailblazing Arab women on stage alongside other celebrities and opinion leaders.

Last year, over 616,000 people from the Middle East visited Thailand, 40 per cent of these visitors were female and the figure looks set to increase this year as more and more Arab women look to Thailand for unique travel experiences. With Islam being the second largest religion in the country, Thailand offers numerous Muslim-friendly activities, hotels and restaurants for travellers from across the Middle East. - TradeArabia News Service
