This weekend, contestants from Miss International Queen flew from Pattaya to Hat Yai in Southern Thailand. MIQ is a transgender beauty pageant that is taking place at Miss Tiffany on Friday 10th March 2017. I was invited to travel with them for this trip to Hat Yai, Songkhla city, and the islands of Koh Khai and Koh Lipe in Satun province. We flew by Air Asia from U-Tapao airport which serves people in both Pattaya and Rayong. The following photos were tweeted live during my trip.
