TAT and Ripley's Believe It or Not to host Worlds Longest Dance Marathon for Valentine's Day

The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) is lending its support to Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Museum in Pattaya to stage a special Dance Marathon in celebration of Valentine’s Day. This is the first ever dance marathon to be held in the kingdom, and will take place from 13-14 February, 2015.


‘The Joy of Love Dance’ is open to couples. Winning couples will receive a cash prize of 200,000 Baht and have their names listed in the famous Guinness Book of World Records. The organisers are hoping that the event will see a new record set as for the world’s longest dance marathon.


The event will be a real physical challenge because to beat the record, couples will have to dance together continuously for more than 35 hours without changing partners. The current world record was set on 16 November, 2008, at Acapulco, Guerrero in Mexico where the winning couple, Francisco Petatán-Garcia and Joana Salinas-Aviles danced for 35 hours.


Pattaya’s Believe it or Not! Museum has already hosted headline-grabbing Valentine’s extravaganzas. Previous events hosted by the museum include the Hug Marathon in 2003 and 2014, the Kissing Marathon in 2011 and 2013, and the world’s largest match-making event in 2010. Also popular was the Wife Carrying Race in 2009. These events were hugely popular with couples who were eager to take part and audiences of tourists and locals who came to watch the fun.


TAT Governor, Mr. Thawatchai Arunyik said, “This romantic event is in line with the drive to promote the kingdom as a world leading honeymoon and wedding venue. Each year, the kingdom’s leading tourism organisations and related businesses strive to attract couples by hosting fun and romantic events around Valentine’s Day. The underwater weddings in Trang, wedding ceremony at the Red Lotus Sea in Udon Thani, and the weddings on elephant back in Surin, have become well known around the world.”
