If we consider contestants on singing competitions who went on to become professional entertainers with a substantial fan base, Stop Warintorn Chaturapush’s name would certainly be mentioned. Apart from her fabulous voice, she has also made a name for herself as an actress. Don’t let her sweet demeanor fool you because this lady loves traveling throughout Thailand. She’ll be telling us about the trips that she enjoyed most and left a most favorable impression on her.
What is your most memorable trip?
It must be my trip to Koh Phangan in Surat Thani Province. It was a trip hosted by the Tourism Authority of Thailand and many stars were invited to join along with journalists. I got to visit many islands whose names I don’t really remember now. What was most memorable for me was the friendliness of the locals who were able to answer any questions raised about their hometowns. I also got to attend my very first Full Moon Party. I didn’t join the tourists’ party but was walking along with beach with my fellow The Star contestant Smile. When we heard the song ‘Gangnum Style,’ we immediately started dancing to it and attracted the attention of other tourists who joined us. There was probably around a dozen of us dancing to the song and they asked to take pictures with us after the song ended. We continued our walk and came across other performances such as jumping over torched ropes which I joined. It was such an adrenaline rush and I got an injury too but it was a great experience.
What is your favorite destination?
I like to go to the beach. I love the sea and mountains. I love the scenery of sea, island, and mountains combined. If I have some free time, I like to visit Surat Thani’s beach because the sea is so dazzling and the sand is so white. It can really reenergize me.
What experiences do you gain from your travels?
I believe that wherever we travel, whether it is somewhere we’ve been or a new destination, we’ll see something new and the changes that occurred. That’s the fun part of travel for me.
Is there any place you’ve never visited and you want to go?
I’d love to visit Phuket Province. I’ve planned a trip there with my family but we haven’t been able to find the time to go yet. There’s always work popping up so I haven’t been able to go yet.
What do you think about Thai Smile Airways?
Most Thais would be familiar with Thai Airways International and now that we have Thai Smile Airways, it’s like an expansion of their business to serve us. Thai Smile Airways is very good because you can save on fares and yet benefit from the security level of Thai Airways International. When flying on Thai Smile Airways, it’s a feeling of security. And its full service makes me a very happy camper. I took a Thai Smile Airways flight to Surat Thani once and it was very impressive because the flight attendants were cheerful and enthusiastic while the food tasted marvelous and there was a huge selection of beverages to choose from. This has made me choose Thai Smile Airways whenever I can.
