Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) designated August 2016 as a ‘month for woman travellers’, in a way of marking Her Majesty Queen Sirikit’s birthday. In order to promote this initiative and inspire female travellers to come to Thailand, TAT has come up with five different promotional concepts: Beautiful LOOK, Beautiful SHAPE, Beautiful RETREAT, Beautiful MIND, Beautiful EXPERIENCE. Our focus at TTF would be to meet and engage with the travel trade from East India and introduce new properties, attractions and destinations in Thailand which they could further promote and sell to their clients.

The story, based on a language miscommunication, has the orchestra stranded in a small Israel town in the middle of the Negev Desert, where the Egyptians encounter townspeople who are both friendly and wary of the strangers but provide assistance nevertheless.In addition to his parents, who glowed in the audience, Stachel thanked the show’s creators for courage in “telling a small story about Arabs and Israelis getting along at a time that we need that more than ever.”He added: “I am part of a cast of actors who never believed that they’d be able to portray their own races, and we’re doing that.” For their trouble, they’ve received messages of thanks from young people all over the Middle East in praise of such a “transformative” play.Stachel’s message back? “I want any kid who’s watching to know that your biggest obstacle may turn into your purpose.”Stachel is a Berkeley, California, native who has appeared on CBS’ “Blue Bloods” and the Netflix/Marvel series “Jessica Jones.” He’s a graduate of New York University’s Tish drama department.
