Thailand Travel Guide Go Fly a Kite In Hua Hin

Go Fly a Kite In Hua Hin Thailand Travel GuideIt’s March, the winds are blowing – this must be kite-flying season – let’s go get high! As southerly winds sweep across the country, the elegant Chula, a five-pointed, star-shaped kite, and the diamond-shaped Puk Pao are ready to glide skywards in a dance of elegance – and of combat. Perhaps second only to eclipses and August’s annual Leonid meteor showers, the kites’ appearances and fighting games are counted among the most exciting events to be seen in Thai skies. This is no more true than at this month’s annual Thailand International Kite Festival in Hua Hin, a 30-day gala of swoop and spin featuring various highlights, including international kiting demonstrations, displays of Thai kites from the Kingdom’s disparate regions, stunt kites and the Chula speed kites and much more entertainment. All of the events take place at the Somdej Phra Suriyothai Camp in Hua Hin district’s Suan Son Pradiphat, Prachuap Khiri Khan. For more details, contact (032) 471 005-6.
