Agents experience authentic Thailand with Excite Holidays
Excite Holidays in conjunction with the Tourism Authority of Thailand, recently held two exclusive agent dinner events in both Sydney and Perth to celebrate their ‘Create your Thailand’ campaign, which wrapped up earlier this month.
Two groups of twenty five top-selling agents were invited to spend a night cooking up a storm and learning a variety of Thai cooking tricks, as well as hearing all about the incredible Southeast Asian destination that is Thailand.
First off the rank was Sydney, where the agents descended upon VIVE Cooking School in Rosebery and learnt how to make Pandan Pannacotta and authentic Pad Thai from scratch, before sitting down to enjoy the meals they had created.
A few days later, it was Perth’s turn, where the agents visited the Salt & Company Cooking School and were shown how to make a delicious Banana Prawn & Thai Basil Penang Curry with a homemade paste, as well as Kai Yang (a smoky lemongrass grilled chicken), a fresh papaya salad and sweet sticky rice with mango. To say it was a feast would be an understatement!
Whilst cooking up a storm, the agents chatted amongst themselves and enjoyed a variety of beverages, and even had the chance to chat to Sherly Handjojo from the Tourism Authority of Thailand, who attended both events and made a short presentation about the exciting travel opportunities on offer in Thailand.
The agents were treated to canapés and welcome drinks on arrival, and both venues were decorated in a Thai-theme, with fresh coconuts, pineapples, colourful fans, fresh flowers, gold lanterns and candles adorning the tables. The agents also wore custom aprons that they were able to take home with them, along with the recipes and an Excite Holidays tote bag that was filled with a few travel essentials.
The events were a big success, and Excite Holidays is thankful to the Tourism Authority of Thailand and all of the agents involved who made the night one to remember!
