Thailand International Balloon Festival
This year’s Thailand International Balloon Festival will take place on December 7-8 at Chiang Mai Gymkhana Golf Club, close to the city center. The festival will lift off on the morning of December 7 with groups of colorful balloons being set off into the sky at sunrise. In the afternoon, you can enjoy various fun activities, such as kite flying, games and a lucky draw with balloon flights the next morning up for grabs. Tasty food from local hotels and famous Chiang Mai’s vendors will be available. The highlight of the evening will be the “Balloon Night Glow”, involving balloons and a lively light and sound display. There’ll also be a concert featuring well-known Thai and international artists such as Garth Taylor, Palmy, Hugo and the famous pianist Nueng Jakkawal.
