Help a Filipino couple win the Ultimate Thailand Explorers contest

Michael Paul and Jennifer are hoping to win the Ultimate Thailand Explorers contest.Last time we checked in on the smart promotion sponsored by the Thai government, “The Ultimate Thailand Explorers Contest,” we were rooting for one couple to win. Unfortunately, Lori Fujikawa-Choy and Jackson Choy, newlyweds from Long Beach, California, didn’t make it to the finals.

But we now have a Filipino couple we can help, who did make it to the contest’s finals. Michael Paul and Jennifer are newlyweds who live in the Philippines. She’s a TV and magazine journalist; he’s a travel agent, and they’re trying to win a trip to Koh Samui, Thailand’s second most popular island destination. They sound like a natural for taking the big prize, because they can create a travelogue and book travel to Thailand.

In fact, they’re sharing their visit to Koh Samui on a contest blog and doing a great job.

You can follow their adventures on the blog, but the most important way you can support them is to register on the site and vote for them (you can vote once every day). The public’s votes will determine the grand prize winners, who will receive:

Cash – $10,000 USD

Holiday package valued at $3,000 USD.
* Veranda Resort, Chiang Mai (2 Nights/2 persons)
* Six Senses Destination Spa, Phuket (1 Night/ 2 persons)
* Absolute Chandara, Phuket (3 Nights/ 2 persons)
* Other hotels (To be announced soon)

2 HTC Android phones

1 Siam Paragon gift voucher valued at $300 USD

Spa treatments at
* Chiida Spa, Chiang Mai (2 persons)
* Oasis Spa, Bangkok (2 persons)

Other prizes:
* 2 Complimentary tickets from Siam Niramit
* 2 Complimentary tickets from Siam Ocean World
* 2 Complimentary tickets from Alangkarn Theatre
* 2 Complimentary tickets from Tiffany Show

To entice you to vote, two registered voters will received $2500 in prizes including a Thailand travel package. Can’t beat that.

Best of luck to Michael and Jenny — we hope you enjoy your Thailand trip, and win the big prize!
