The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) is thrilled to announce that the southern province of Krabi will appear in the last two episodes of ABC’s blockbuster reality series “The Bachelor,” including the highly anticipated finale.
The Krabi episodes will run on ABC on March 20 and 27, 2023, and will be available to view the following day on Hulu. They’ll get to witness the show’s star, the newest Bachelor, Zach Shallcross, spend the week in Krabi.Mr. Santi Sawangcharoen, TAT New York Office Director and TAT Toronto Office Acting Director, said “Krabi being featured prominently in ABC’s The Bachelor underscores how Thailand is a top destination for romantic travel. Krabi itself is no stranger to proposals, destination weddings and honeymoons, and its appearance in the series will raise further awareness that Thailand has fully re-opened to tourism and now is a wonderful time to visit and explore the natural beauty, luxury accommodations, and idyllic offerings.”
The presence of Krabi as a site in ABC’s “The Bachelor” would be beneficial in promoting the TAT’s ‘Visit Thailand Year 2023: Incredible New Chapters’ campaign to the US market, as well as portraying Thailand as a favorite holiday destination in Southeast Asia for American travelers.
In season 19 of “The Bachelorette,” Shallcross, a 26-year-old IT executive from Anaheim Hills, California, won Bachelor Nation’s heart with his calm charm, humor, and openness to finding permanent love. When Shallcross made his emotional leave, audiences witnessed him put himself and his desire to meet “the one” first, opening the way for his “person” to go through.
Shallcross, a family guy at heart, divides his time between Texas and Orange County. His parents, who have been married for nearly 30 years, have showed him the meaning of genuine love. He aspires to discover a love that reflects the ideal they have set for him, and he intends to keep them in mind as he searches for a life mate. Home is where the heart is, and with the Bachelor mansion not far away, Shallcross is excited to return to Southern California.
