Thailand Int’l Kite Festival in Cha-am

The Thailand International Kite Festival returns to Cha-Am Beach, showcasing large and fancy kites from around the globe. From 10 to 12 March (Friday to Sunday) 2017, from 10am to 8pm daily, kites in fun and colourful designs will dot the skies around Cha-Am Beach. This year’s theme is “Deep Blue Sea”, so we’re expecting kites in the form of whales, rays and other sea creatures. There should also be a variety of non-marine animal kites as well as geometric forms and cartoon characters.

Hosted by the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT), the event attracts kite enthusiasts, participants and viewers, and it’s great fun for all. You can even try your hand at flying a kite — there will be vendors selling a variety of kites (among other products like handicrafts and food).

The festival usually includes other activities as well; past years have witnessed a parachute show, a stunt kite show that display an array of moves to music, and a LED kite show at night. This event is quite a visual treat — and definitely one that will delight the whole family.

Getting there: Cha-am, in Petchaburi province, is about a 2 hour drive from Bangkok (approximately 200 km). The most direct driving route from Bangkok is to follow Highway 35 south to Highway 4 (Petchkasem Road). For more information on the festival, call TAT’s hotline at 1672.
