Thai Smile

Thai Smile was hosted by Selling Long Haul and sponsored by Bangkok Air, Thai Airways and Travel 2. The evening was held at Carbon in Marble Arch.

The evening began with some networking over Mai Tai cocktails and perusing over the all the helpful literature that was left on the table for us. It was lovely to meet up again with so many of my colleagues, most of whom I haven’t seen since well before Christmas

After a brief introduction by each of the sponsors, Thai Airways a well established airline and part of Star Alliance are upgrading their Heathrow bound aircraft to operate the more couple friendly Airbus 340. It is also possible to prebook seats giving Thai advantages over other airlines operating over the same route

Bangkok Air have an extensive internal network and also operate to other Asian countries and with their agreements with many airlines it it possible to book luggage straight through

Travel 2 which started off as mainly a flight consolidator now has 10 comprehensive brochures including its new Luxury brochure. Tonight they promoted the Asia brochure which has an extensive range of mainstream, boutique hideaways in lesser known locations and luxury properties

We saw a slide show of beautiful images of coral seas and stunning white beaches, buzzing Bangkok and the green interior

The rest of the evening was in a quiz format and as there were so many Travel Counsellors we split up into two teams the other team, Patpong Ping Pong and us, Wat ever (deliberate play on words) Before the quiz and during the breaks we had some bowl food and canapés

Putting our heads together and using the brochures both of our Travel Counsellors teams did very well coming second, having each only dropped 3 points after answering 50 questions about Thailand

It was a fun and informative evening with lots of prizes including holidays and educational trips to Thailand
