Thailand’s first and only International Balloon Festival will be on March 2-4, 2018, in Thailand’s northern city of Chiang Mai at the Cowboy Army Riding Club. The backdrop of the fabulous mountains and Doi Suthep will ensure an unforgettable shot of the night glow show against the indigo skies.
The festival this year marks the 10th anniversary of the hot air balloon festival, so there will be plenty of unique attractions, activities for the whole family and delicious food from top hotels and restaurants in Chiang Mai. We are looking forward to popular local bands like the Odd Gods and others.
An abundance of hot air balloons will gracefully drift through the air, but one of the highlights will be the unique, balloons night glow that will decorate the sky at night. It will be the first time in the world that “Sornchat Krainara has created the Sparkling Glow" of the balloon nightglow, the Festival Owner and her Boon Companion Composer, Bringkop Vora-Urai. The night glow will be synchronised with specially composed music with the Lanna Orchestra combine The Tiger Drum and Opera which has never performed anywhere before.
