HBO’s Emmy-winning anthology series, The White Lotus, will begin filming for season 3 in Bangkok, Phuket, and Koh Samui next month.
The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) has partnered with HBO for the filming and promotion of the series in Thailand, which will star two Thai actors, Dom Hetrakul and Tayme Thapthimthong, alongside others.
Thapanee Kiatphaibool, TAT governor, said: “We are honoured to have amazing Thailand featured as the filming location for the highly anticipated upcoming season of The White Lotus. The Kingdom’s exotic natural beauty, rich historical sites and diverse landscapes are the perfect settings to share our fascinating culture, fantastic cuisine, top-notch wellness and luxury offerings, and most importantly our people and Thai hospitality. Thailand has long been considered one of the world’s favourite filming locations.”
Janet Graham Borba, executive vice president of production for HBO & Max, said the series will “showcase all that the beautiful country of Thailand has to offer”.
The third season of The White Lotus is slated to premiere on HBO in 2025. Season 1 and 2 were set in Hawaii and Sicily respectively.
