Miss Universe 2015 Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach is featured in the newest Amazing Thailand promotional videos.
The Filipina’s iconic beauty and international celebrity status brought the world’s attention to the Philippines’ Southeast Asian neighbor during her four day stay as she posted about her trip on her social media.
The resulting 3 tourism videos of Amazing Thailand showed Queen Pia enjoying the beauty and unique tourism destinations she found in Thailand accompanied by Filipino celebrity host Tim Yap.
In the article accompanying the video releases Wurtzbach revealed how her Miss Universe journey included a stop in Thailand to recuperate and firm up her resolve to try again after failing to get the Miss Universe Philippines title for the second time.
“I like that it feels like home,” the former Miss Universe said, sharing how she felt “heartbroken” after her second failed attempt for the Philippine beauty title. In Thailand she went to a temple and was blessed. The following year she finally won the Miss Universe Philippines title, which brought her to the Miss Universe competition, and the Miss Universe crown – the country’s third win.
Released by iTravel Channel and produced by Kirby Studios Thailand, the first promotional video featured the Filipina beauty queen at the Women’s Journey Thailand Party at a 102-year old heritage house where she met other beauty title holders from different countries, and other influential and beautiful women.
The second video titled “Pia Wurtzbach Discovers Unique Thai Local Experiences” showed the Filipina beauty icon “making merit” or offerings to the Buddhist monks by the Chao Phraya River, then enjoying her Tuk Tuk rides to the flower market, and being awed by the Wat Pho or Wat Phra Chetuphon, one of the largest temple complexes in the city famous for its giant Reclining Buddha.
The third promotional video, “Pia Wurtzbach’s Hand-Picked Bangkok Luxurious Lifestyle,” brought the model-actress through the shopping district for her “pasalubong” finds to take home to the Philippines, dining with a 360-degree view of Bangkok, watching the traditional Ramayana dance, and a night cruise over the waters of Bangkok.
Wurtzbach treated her fans online with updates about her filming on her Instagram account.
