About me

Anne Somanas is a hospitality media & travel trade journalist with TTG Asia Media, one of the oldest trade publications in the region. She has contributed numerous news reports, analyses and opinion pieces about matters that are impactful to the tourism industry, and is a skilled MC and moderator with extensive public speaking experience under her belt. Her opinion pieces have also been published in the Bangkok Post.

With a strong interest in caring for the environment and creating social impact, Anne is also a passionate community builder who helms numerous communities with united interests in Bangkok, most notably the Bangkok Recycling Chain - a grassroots movement to divert waste from landfills, find new homes for unused items and educate people about circular economy.

The group has hosted many events to promote eco-conscious products and sustainable living, such as clothing swaps to help people refresh their wardrobes without having to buy new clothes and festivals to mindfully connect conscious consumers with impactful businesses.
