Pattaya to hold ‘Kite on the Beach 2021’ festival during Songkran period to boost domestic tourism

Pattaya –

Pattaya is all set to hold the first ever ‘Kite on the Beach 2021’ festival from April 9th to April 19th.

A planning meeting was held today at the Pattaya City Hall and was led by the Pattaya City Deputy Mayor Ronnakit Eakkasing and the president of the Pattaya Business and Tourism Association.

The event will be held from April 9th to April 19th at the beach in front of Central Festival Pattaya Beach.

Mr. Ronnakit told The Pattaya News, “The festival is aimed to attract more domestic tourists to Pattaya and to stimulate the economy for Pattaya and Chonburi.”

“The biggest kite will be the ‘Bowl Kite’ a huge female whale previously involved with ‘Guinness World Records’ coming in at a massive 35 meters long and will be present at the festival.”

“It will be the first time in Thailand we will have LED kites and more than 30 different varieties of big kites.” Ronnakit added.

The festival will essentially take place instead of a massive water fight and planned concerts as is normal for this time of year but was banned by the Thai Center for Covid-19 Situation Administration due to concerns about potentially spreading the coronavirus.

This festival will also still feature traditional Songkran activities on the beach including a variety of food vendors.
