For the ninth consecutive year, the Amari Rincome Hotel,
in co-operation with the Angkhang Nature Resort organized their Family Fun
Rally over the May 1st weekend.
35 cars with 90 people were challenged with various
activities, such as composing the Rally song of the year, learning and
repeating hill tribe sentences, and a lot of other funny silly things which
you can only do in a car.
As this rally route is known to be a very scenic one, the
outdoors was also a part in the games. Before lunch was served at one of the
scenic points on route, (catered by the Amari Rincome), the participants had
to go through some exercises to build up an appetite.

For those who were not yet satisfied after lunch, the
afternoon brought a surprise in form of a snack-game called ‘Thai Fear
Factor’ and one team member of each car had to eat five tasty (?) bugs as
quickly as they could. Competitors who had been through that exercise before
were closely watching to make sure that nothing of that ‘appetizing’
snack was lost.

After more afternoon challenges, the Teams finally
reached the “Finish” banner, placed prominently across the main entrance
to the Angkhang Nature Resort.
The evening featured dinner and the prize-giving
ceremony. TAT Director Junnapong Saranak, who was a contestant himself, and
HSH Prince Bhisadej Rajani presented the prizes to the winners and
runners-up, as well the booby prize for the Team which came in last.
Another fun rally, perhaps a little quieter than in previous years but
nevertheless huge thanks went to everyone who helped make the weekend what
it was – a great family fun weekend.
