Pia Wurtzbach recently traveled to one of her favorite go-to countries, Thailand. The 2015 Miss Universe winner shared with her followers on Instagram glimpses of her trip to the country.
The actress-beauty queen revealed that Thailand is very special to her as it gave her “signs” to answers that she was looking for. Aside from that, what really makes her go back to the country is the food.
“Touristy things 🇹🇭 After work, I ventured out on my own to visit the temples here in Bangkok. #Bangkok will always be special to me — so many memorable things happened to me here prior competing and winning Miss U. Ang dami kong ‘signs’ na nasagot dito. Nakwento ko na ata dati sa inyo,” she wrote.
Pia roamed the streets of Thailand and immersed herself in the culture during her trip to the country. According to the beauty queen, although the weather was very hot, walking around Thailand is always an enjoyable experience for her.
Pia won the Miss Universe crown back in 2015 wherein she ended the 42-year title drought for the Philippines. The reason Thailand holds such a special place in Pia’s heart is because the beauty queen did her soul searching in the country after she lost in her second attempt at Binibining Pilipinas.
Bangkok became the place for her to clear her mind and rest. During the time she was visiting the temples, she said that she found the luck and guidance to try for the third and final time for Binibining Pilipinas. After that, the rest was history––she won and defied the odds.
Last May, Pia and her then-boyfriend now fiancé, Jeremy Jauncey, announced their engagement through their respective social media accounts. The couple posted their engagement while they were on a vacation in Amanpulo.
