The Great Expat Explore Hotel Stay Prize Draw Giveaway

 

Early this year Thaivisa.com launched Expat Explore designed to help domestic travel in Thailand through Expat travel. Thaivisa went to the industry and negotiated hard to get the best possible travel rates for its Expat members in exchange for free advertising.

The market responded and Expats not surprisingly redeemed these wonderful offers and started to travel more throughout Thailand, a win-win in every sense.

 

To celebrate this and further push Expat Explore Thaivisa have again teamed up with hoteliers throughout Thailand to offer 10 lucky winners free hotel accommodation ranging from 1 to 2 nights. We also have over 10 other runner prizes of vouchers for hotel stay at 40% - 50% off.
