IG-famous doctor offers free advertisement services


Covid-19 has wreaked havoc on Thailand’s economy, especially the tourism and service sectors. Due to the safety measures set by the government, many food and beverage businesses have temporarily closed or have been forced to shut down.

Luckily, there are locals like Dr. Kang who are offering free advertisement services to aid them. This Instagram-famous doctor has asked restaurants to send him their menus, which he will then repost onto his story in order to bring them more exposure. 

Here’s how his method is helping those in the food business, and how to contact him.

On 29th June 2021, Mr. Ariyatash Tungsanga a.k.a. Dr. Kang posted on his Instagram account that he will share on his IG story images of menus from any eatery that sends him a picture of what they offer. His announcement comes just days after the official order for restaurants to pause dine-in services.

Besides being IG-famous doctor and fitness junkie, Dr. Kang is also an adventure lover. 

As a certified scuba diver, Dr. Kang enjoys going on liveaboards – it’s like a cruise, but instead of spending your days lounging at the bar, you’re doing at least three dives a day.

A selfless doctor


With the Hippocratic oath that medical practitioners take, they vow to help and save peoples’ lives in any way they can. Dr. Kang’s initiative to help struggling restaurants displays how one can keep their vow while also branching out. 

Kudos to Dr. Kang for his selfless sacrifices in being a frontliner and wanting to assist struggling businesses. 

It’s important to always be kind and the doctor is a good example of this. We’re excited to see the outcomes of his initiative.
