TBEX Asia 2015 Fam Trip – Hot to Trat!

The words “FAM Trip” are always buzzing around in the Travel Blogging Community and people always want to know….WHAT IS A FAM TRIP? 

  • FAMiliarization Trips are a way for people to learn about, then share information about destinations
  • Travel Agents used to be the ones who were the only ones invited on these trips
  • Today, the Travel Blogger is the new Travel Agent
  • When Travel Agents were invited on the trips, they would SELL these destinations to their clients
  • A BLOGGER will often write, or video about a destination, and TELL their audiences in a very authentic way about the experience
  •  Hence, this BLOG POST and VIDEO titled, “Hot to Trat”—-
 HOT TO TRAT (that’s what I called it cause I was SWEATING most of the time) was generously sponsored by:
  • Tourism Authority of Thailand
  • Queen Sirikrit Convention Center
  • True Move (they gave us SIM cards)
  • Bangkok Airways
  • Banpu Resort
  • Waterfront Seafood Restaurant
  • Italay Beach Bar and Restaurant
  • Suanpu Restaurant
