"It's been lovely visiting Hua Hin and learning about Thailand's proud heritage and captivating design works which are present throughout the town and the InterContinental. The resort's staff have all been really charming and I have loved having a constant view of Hua Hin's beautiful coastline," said Miss Wenxia.
Miss Wenxia has enjoyed a whistle-stop tour around the Kingdom, visiting Hua Hin, Bangkok and Chiang Mai where she was particularly enchanted with her encounter with one of Thailand's enduring tourist icons, the elephants.
"It has been an absolute delight having Miss Wenxia visit us here at the InterContinental, not only is she a beautiful and caring person, but every trip she makes helps raise awareness of the fantastic grassroots charity Beauty With a Purpose, which is controlled by the Miss World Organisation.
