Do you have what it takes to be the 10th annual King’s Cup Polo Tournament’s newest…and youngest reporter? If so, Anantara wants you! Anantara is now taking Facebook submissions for their Roving Elephant Reporter contest. They are looking for a talented reporter between the ages of 7 and 15 to cover the daily action on the polo field along with behind-the-scene interviews with Anantara’s Director of Elephants, John Roberts, elephant veterinarians, and elephant polo players. But that’s not all, the young reporter will also get the chance to explore the exotic beauty of the royal seaside town of Hua Hin, Thailand, and report back on their adventures, such as visiting the teak wood palace, Maruekhathaiyawan, one of the oldest and most treasured royal palaces in Thailand, trekking through a local vineyard by elephant, and participating in a kids-only Thai cooking class.
