Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach visits Bangkok!

Miss Universe 2015, Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach recently visited Bangkok to meet her fans and to experience unique elements of Thai culture. She was also invited to help promote independent travel for women by joining the launch of “Women’s Journey Campaign” event hosted by the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) which ran for the whole month of August.

While in Bangkok, Pia was able to enjoy and explore Thai culture, sample its exotic food and fine-dining, visit some popular Bangkok tourist spots and experience world-class shopping and entertainment.

Pia said she loved Thailand’s vibrant culture, fun-loving locals and amazing shopping experiences. But beyond shopping malls, she’s also impressed by the friendliness of the people and the variety of the kingdom’s stunning destinations, which are fun, beautiful and allow visitors, especially solo female travelers, a sense of peace, safety and tranquility. During her four- day visit to Thailand, she also enjoyed activities that showcased Thailand’s rich arts and culture and watched a performance of “Ramayana”, as well as taking part in a Thai cooking class and toured Rattanakosin island, Wat Pho and the famous flower market.

The popular beauty queen also had a “Meet and Greet Day” event and was joined by Miss Universe Thailand 2017 winner, Maria Poonlertlarp Ehren, first runner-up Supaporn Litiphruek, and joint second place runners-up Suraphuen Artkong, Ratchanok Nawaset and Paweensuda Du-uen – all of whom charmed the crowds by taking time to chat, answer questions and to pose for the pictures.

Since her reign as Miss Universe, Pia has maintained a high profile, working on her TV career and doing charity work. On May 3, 2017, Pia was named a UNAIDS (United Nations Programme on HIV and AIDS) Ambassador of Goodwill for Asia and the Pacific. Before she left Thailand, Pia also made a courtesy call at UNAIDS headquarter here in Bangkok.
