Two travel writers from Australia have been made Friends of Thailand

Those planning on jetting off on flights to Thailand may want to read the work of two travel writers recently given the honour of being made Friends of Thailand before they head off.Julie Miller and Kristie Kellahan, who are both from Australia, are set to be given their Friends of Thailand honour in September, at the 7th Friends of Thailand awards. These are due to be held at the Centara Grand Central Hotel in Bangkok.

The Friends of Thailand awards are held every two years and to be nominated for one of the prizes, people must have “played an outstanding role in the support of public relation of Thailand by disseminating information and encouraging positive images of Thailand”.

As well as this, they must have arranged events to promote Thailand, have a keen interest in the preservation of Thailand’s culture and environment, and must live overseas.

Books written by Julie Miller include Great Horse Treks of the World and she is regular contributor to Vacations & Travel Magazine. Kristie Kellahan has written the travel pages for New Woman magazine and was also editor of inflight magazine Virgin Blue for three years.
