Tim Cook's international tour continues with developer visit in Thailand
Continuing his international tour, Tim Cook has landed in Thailand, taking in the sights of the Chao Phraya River and Wat Arun, as well as visiting schoolchildren learning from Apple's Everyone, Can Create curriculum, and speaking to WWDC scholarship winners.
On the latest leg of his trip, following visits to Japan and Singapore, Cook has moved on to Thailand. Just as with his other international journeys, Cook is spending time promoting areas of interest for the iPhone maker while visiting picturesque locations famous in the country.
His first tweet from the country revealed he spent his morning on the Chao Phraya River on the way to Wat Arun. Shown kneeling at a temple, Cook thanks Instagram user Jirasak Panpiansin for showing him around the venue.
Cook then moved on to visit Satit-Chula in Bangkok, where he spoke with educators and students that are using iPads to learn about the solar system. The school is doing so by taking advantage of Apple's Everyone Can Create program, which helps educators integrate elements such as music, drawing, and photography into their lessons.
Congratulating the Thai women's national volleyball team for recently winning at the Southeast Asian Games, Cook met the coach and the team on an indoor court. The CEO's tweet mentions how the Apple Watch and iPad is used to train members for major tournaments.
Later, there was a meeting with a pair of WWDC scholarship winners, identified as Kiratijuta and Patcharapon, with Cook noting how their "careers have taken off." Cook also spoke to studygrammer "Peanut Butter" who works with an iPad to bring "intricate Thai handwriting to life."
It made my heart sing to spend time with Thailand's WWDC scholarship winners Kiratijuta and Patcharapon. Amazing to see how your careers have taken off since WWDC! And great to meet studygrammer Peanut Butter who brings intricate Thai handwriting to life on iPad. Stunning! pic.twitter.com/gAqcAgS5wj— Tim Cook (@tim_cook) December 13, 2019
Cook regularly posts photographs from his travels to his Twitter account, and is highly likely to continue doing so for the remainder of his journey.
