THAI SELECT USA #CHECKFORTHAISELECT for the chance to win a culinary trip to bangkok & hua hin

The official seal of Thai Select


Thai Select or Thai Select Premium certification identifies Thai restaurants that offer at least 60 percent authentic Thai food on their menus. They also imply that these restaurants employ the same or similar cooking methods as in Thailand, and may import ingredients from Thailand. The certifications, however, neither rates foods nor endorses any quality standard of the restaurant. They merely indicate authenticity of the Thai foods prepared.


The #CheckForThaiSelect sweepstakes is hosted by the Thai Trade Center USA, and it is a user sweepstakes in which users can enter for the chance to win a trip to Thailand (Bangkok and Hua Hin) for 6 nights, 7 days. There is no purchase necessary to enter or win the Sweepstakes. All you have to do is show us your favorite Thai dishes or selfie at any Thai Select restaurant. It's that simple.

Participants must complete the following steps to enter the Sweepstakes.

  1. Visit any of the Thai Select restaurants listed here. There is no purchase necessary.
  2. Capture a selfie at the restaurant (inside or outside of the venue.) There are bonus entry points if you actually dine at the venue and include the photo of the dish you ordered.
  3. Upload the photo to your personal Twitter or Instagram and include the hashtag #CheckForThaiSelect AND you must also include @ThaiSelectUSA. The hashtag and Thai Select username must be written within the first 3 lines of your caption.
  4. “Check-in” to the restaurant (so we know where you visited) on Instagram check-in or Twitter check-in when you upload your photo.
