Hua Hin Festival

With the wind off the Gulf of Thailand guaranteed, Hua Hin is the perfect place to host a kite festival. And so it does every second year during the month of March at The King Rama VI Army Camp just north of Hua Hin.

The festival has been going for over 10 years and is growing in popularity each time. It's now not just the local Thais who show off their skills as contestants come from all over the country and internationally as well.

You'll be able to see stunt kites, big kites, small kites, traditional Thai kites and international displays. Individual and team competitions take place with contestants coming from as far afield as Canada, New Zealand, France, China, India and Singapore (to name only a few of the countries that participate).

It's a truely spectactular event that you'll be able to join in with and there's a good selection of kites, souvenirs and other crafts for sale around the festival grounds.
