Thailand Medical Tourism Blog Contest

Are you a blogger who is experienced in writing on the subject of either tourism, medical or/and medical tourism related blogs? If the answer is yes, then step aboard, you have exclusive rights to compete in this year’s ultra amazing Medical Blog Contest! OK, here’s what you gotta do…
The Medical Blog Contest, organized by the Tourism Authority of Thailand, is aimed at promoting medical tourism within the Kingdom. The competition is open to each individual blogger who has acceptable experience in writing tourism, medical or medical tourism related blogs. 12 qualified bloggers, also known as Finalists, will be selected to experience for themselves pre-selected key medical and health service providers (e.g. Hospital, clinic, spa) from five randomly selected destinations (Bangkok, Phuket, Pattaya, Chiang Mai and Ko Samui) over the course of 4 consecutive days, and then 3 more in Bangkok. The TAT and/or Organizer will also arrange a variety of sightseeing tours for Finalists, so further encouraging Thailand’s attractiveness as a medical tourism hub.

Each Participant will be asked to share his/her daily experience with a global audience by posting blog posts, photos, videos and travel stories with social media tools in order to inspire other travelers to learn more about and take interest in visiting those destinations for the purpose of medical tourism.

The template URL for each Finalist’s Medical tourism blog will, once the Finalists are selected, be created and provided under the domain name

After the committee has made its decision based on the competition criteria, the Participant whose blog receives the highest unique visitors will be named the 'highest unique visitors winner' and the contestant whose blog is selected as the best blog content will be named the ‘best blog content winner'.
