Thailand Tourism Festival 2019@Lumphini Park

Tourismfestival2019-3

Each year in late January a “Thailand Tourism Festival” is held in Lumphini park to highlight the different arts, crafts, foods and culture of the various regions of Thailand.

Although it is mainly aimed at potential domestic Thai tourists it is a chance for foreign tourists to get a glimpse and taste of the country……just don’t expect to see much signage or commentary in English 🙂

Traditional “khaen” from Northeast Thailand/Laos.

I love the sound of this bamboo instrument, along with the phin. I’ve got absolutely no musical talent though 😦

If I remember right, this ladyboy show was in the Eastern Thailand section so they probably come from Pattaya.

Well, one of them is a real girl, although not 100% natural
