About Miss Thailand Pageant

Miss Thailand Pageant was inaugurated as "Miss Siam" pageant on Thailand's Constitution Festival in 1934, and was later named "Miss Thailand" in 1939, when the country's name was changed from "Siam" to "Thailand".

In 1964, Vajiravudh College Beauty Queen Contest, the country's most famous beauty pageant at the time, was transformed into Miss Thailand pageant, with aim to enhance the role of the prestigious contest in empowering the value of Thai Women and their rights, as well as preserving Thai cultural beauty and promoting the name of Thailand in international community.

Miss Thailand pageant was held on a regular basis, but not annually. The contest was cancelled in the years where the country was affected by war and political crisis. Until today, Miss Thailand pageant has been held for 50 times during its 85-year history.
