Rosewood Bangkok, a visually striking, ultra-luxury property on Ploenchit Road in Bangkok’s prime central business and retail district, will open 31 March 2019, marking the second Thailand property for Rosewood Hotels & Resorts® and the dazzling urban sister to Rosewood Phuket, opened in 2017. An amalgam of contemporary sophistication and Thai heritage, Rosewood Bangkok will bring to life the brand’s hallmark A Sense of Place® philosophy through architectural design and carefully curated décor, spa and dining experiences. Reservations are now being accepted with opening offers available at rosewoodhotels.com. The 30-story standalone property will help reshape the Bangkok skyline by occupying two connecting high-rise structures that create a modern tribute to the Thai spirit.  Its contemporary form is inspired by the wai -- the graceful Thai gesture of palms pressed together in greeting.  The hotel will be conveniently connected to the BTS Station amidst a luxury enclave of embassies, new office towers and upscale malls. The hotel is celebrating its upcoming opening by launching its official @rosewoodbangkok social media accounts on Facebook and Instagram.  The Facebook platform debuts on 19 February with the distinctive #WaiBangkok campaign showcasing the dynamism, creativity and style of the Thai capital.  Residents and travelers will be invited to share their own new perspectives of Bangkok inspired by Rosewood Bangkok’s entry to the city. “Rosewood Bangkok represents an exciting new expression of ultra-luxury hospitality in Bangkok,” says Thomas Harlander, the hotel’s managing director.  “It will be a symbol of the emergence of the country’s capital as a hub of creative style and design for the region. Rosewood’s A Sense of Place® philosophy will also be thoughtfully interpreted in modern yet authentically Thai fashion through the entire hotel, from its design to all its experiences -- we aim to provide a portal to all the many fascinating sides of this captivating capital and culture.” The “#WaiBangkok” campaign, 19 February to 31 May, will feature a photo series by distinguished photographers Tum Chanipol Kusolcharttum and Scott Woodward. Tum, better known as Rockkhound, is one of Thailand's best street photographers and will kickstart the campaign with his perspective of Bangkok’s dynamic charisma. Scott Woodward, a Canadian seasoned documentary photographer whose works are often seen on the glossy pages of National Geographic, Condé Nast Traveler and New York Times, will contribute a series of photos of Bangkok that illustrate why this City of Angels so attracts him. The visually stunning campaign will invite people to share a different and more contemporary side of Thailand’s capital and showcase their favorite hidden gems to illustrate “why” they love Bangkok. Participants will post their own fresh and compelling images of the city on Rosewood Bangkok’s official social media accounts using the hashtag #WaiBangkok and tagging Rosewood Bangkok’s Facebook or Instagram account @RosewoodBangkok.  The winner will receive a THB100,000 credit to spend at the hotel.   Introductory Offers to Rediscover Bangkok “Redefining Bangkok,” offers guests an opportunity to tailor their inaugural stay with a choice of a one-way airport transfer in a Rosewood Bangkok limousine, daily breakfast for two at Lakorn European Brasserie,

The Copenhagen Light Festival builds on the artistic success debut in February 2018, where most of the Copenhageners got outdoor light experiences along their daily routes - and the international television media showed pictures with enthusiasm. The city's citizens and prospective visitors will once more see the capital brighten in the dark from February 1st-24th 2019 during Copenhagen Light Festival. Harbor and city spaces are lit up by great light experiences from Nordhavn to Ørestad. There will be light on dark drifting clouds, beautiful old buildings, architectural squares, the city's canals, and other city spaces. Tivoli's new initiative, "Winter in Tivoli," is aligned with Copenhagen Light Festival, so as much of the city as possible is highlighted. 35-40 light installations are presently planned and can be experienced alone or via the festivals’ guided tours by bike, by Segway, in canal boats, in kayaks, as well as regular guided walks in the dark February. Light in the dark gave Copenhagen a new opportunity locally and internationally The premiere of the new light festival in Copenhagen in 2018 had a major international media interest with 300 press clips, and was seen by more than 200 million viewers, including the BBC and several major media channels in the United States, Germany and many other countries in Europe, Asia and the rest of the world. "We are proud of once more being able to invite guests and residents to experience beautiful poetic light installations in the dark and thus tap into two political and commercial agendas; that Copenhageners should stay 20% more outdoor and to make Copenhagen an attraction for winter tourism. The most amazing thing is that it takes place with artistic light installations as a lever”, says Head of project, Catja Thystrup. Copenhagen Light Festival collaborates with a grand network of artists, designers, and culture & commerce. The festival has amongst others the following lights hosts: Copenhagen Municipality, Tivoli, The Parliament, Louis Poulsen, Stromma Danmark Canal Tours, Chamber of Commerce, North Atlantic Brygge, Danhostel, Philips Signify, Culture House Islands Brygge, BC Hospitality Group, Blox, DGI-Byen, Copenhagen City Commerce, and more are coming.

The Miss World Organisation, led by Julia Morley, CEO and Chairman has today announced the 69th Miss World Final will be hosted in Thailand. This is the first time in the history of Miss World that the month-long festival and final will take place in Thailand. During the press conference held at Phaya Thai Palace in Bangkok, Julia Morley said: “I am delighted to have been invited to hold the 2019 Miss World Final in Thailand. Given the country’s rich culture and hospitality, the ‘Land of Smiles’ is the perfect place to welcome the 130 Miss World Nations”. Started in 1951, Miss World has inspired and empowered thousands of young women to use their talents to support the poor, sick and disadvantaged through its ‘Beauty With A Purpose’ charitable programme. The longest-running international pageant, Miss World is not a traditional beauty pageant, but rather a platform for women from across the globe to raise awareness and funds in aid of humanitarian causes. The organisation prides itself on its philanthropic focus with millions of dollars being raised for good causes every year. Delegates from 130 countries are scheduled to arrive in Thailand in November with the final to be held in December. During their month in Thailand they will participate in a string of preliminary activities and visit the most spectacular tourism sites across the country as well as take part in ‘Beauty With a Purpose’ fundraising activities to help good causes in Thailand.  Last year’s event was held in China, with the final in Sanya. This was the ninth time Miss World has been in China and has been credited with increasing global inbound tourism and boosting the local economy. China has two Miss World’s, Zhang Zilin was crowned in 2007 and Yu Wenxia in 2012. The highly-anticipated Miss World final show will be telecast globally to over 100 countries, where viewers will watch as the reigning Miss World, Vanessa Ponce de León, who was crowned in China, pass the crown to the 69th Miss World in Thailand. Local organiser TW Pageants has been appointed to be the hosting partner for Miss World 2019 Final. Tanawat Wansom, Chief Executive Officer of TW Pageants, said: “Following China, I am honoured to receive the right to  host such a major beauty pageant like Miss World in Thailand. Working closely with the brilliant team of the Miss World Organisation, I believe this opportunity will bring tremendous joy to the Thai people as they will get to see the beautiful, talented Miss World contestants in action in their home country. We also expect that hosting the programme will be a major boost to promote Thai tourism, culture and hospitality to a global audience. As the official partner of Miss World Organisation, we will work hard to make sure that this prestigious event comes out perfectly.”  Attending alongside Morley at the press conference were reigning Miss World Vanessa Ponce de León, as well as the seven continental queens, including; Miss World Asia Nicolene Pichapa Limsnukan who represented Thailand last year, Miss World Europe Maria Vasilevich from Belarus, Miss World Caribbean Kadijah Robinson from Jamaica, Miss World Oceania Jessica Tyson from New Zealand, Miss World Africa Quiin Abenakyo from Uganda, Miss World Americas Solaris Barba from Panama, and Miss United Kingdom Linzi McLelland from Scotland.
