There will be a range of fun, games and performances taking place on both days, with the chance for expats and locals to enjoy traditional Thai pastimes and to take part in language and  cooking challenges.


The Expat Fair Thailand 2016 got off to a colourful start in Thong Lo’s Fragrant Park with notable expats joining Mr. Yuthasak Supasorn, TAT Governor (5th from left); Mr. Chattan Kunjara, TAT Deputy Governor for Marketing Communications (4th from left); and Ms. Supranee Pongpat, TAT Executive Director of the Advertising and Public Relations Department (4th from right), as well as former Miss Universe Natalie Glebova (3rd from left) on stage to symbolically “Share the Love” for Thailand and the Thai people.


At the Expat Fair 2016, TAT will also be promoting the kingdom’s 12 Hidden Gems, the lovely attractions that showcase Thailand’s five regions, by offering activities unique to each destination. These include ceramic painting from Lampang, rice growing from Suphan Buri, indigo cloth dying from Nakhon Si Thammarat, and the chance to make masks as used in the Phi Ta Khon Festival in Loei.

There will also be a prize draw to win one of 40 Nok Air tickets to destinations in Thailand, with 20 tickets being given out on each day of the event.

On Saturday 1 October, highlights will include an opening ceremony; a display of Japanese drumming by Ryukyu Budan Shoryu Matsuri Daiko; an Indian dance performed by the Indian Cultural Centre and concerts from expat Luk Thung singer Ms. Christy Gibson and the Korean/Thai hip-hop group 316 performance.

On Sunday, 2 October, event highlights include Ingrid and Max, famous singers from the voice who will give a concert; Japanese drumming, Indian dancing and Mexican guitar music. The Expat Fair Thailand will end with a mini concert by Luk Thung singers Mr. Jonas Anderson and Ms. Christy Gibson.

During the fair, well-known foreigners who live in Thailand will talk about things they love most about the kingdom. These include former Miss Universe, Ms. Natalie Glebova, and Australian, author, and television personality, Mr. Andrew Biggs, who will also take part in a cooking challenge.

“We’re reaching out to expats to encourage international cultural exchanges and to help them to “Discover Amazing Stories” in Thailand. Strong relations with people living and working here help build links and confidence in Thailand among expats and their families and create a positive vibe in the community,” Mr. Yuthasak added.
