The biggest Party of 2014
Thailand is back and what better way to celebrate than with a huge party! The primary business and shopping district of downtown Bangkok is to be converted into a giant festival of happiness, joy, fun and Thai smiles over the 25-26 July weekend as part of a big-bang effort to show the world that Thai tourism is more than back to normal. In an extravaganza never before held in Thailand, the entire Ratchaprasong area will come alive with colourful parades, great shopping, fashion shows, concerts and culinary delights from 15.00 hrs to midnight on both days.
The theme “Thailand Happiness” will be lived up to the hilt. Tourism Authority of Thailand Governor Mr. Thawatchai Arunyik said, “This event will be unmatched in the annals of Thai tourism. Along with our project partners, Thai Airways International Public Company Limited (TG) and the Ratchaprasong Square Trade Association, we are going to make this the biggest and best back-to-normal party Thailand has ever seen.” On both days, there will be a Happiness Concert featuring performances by contemporary musicians and traditional Thai folk singers at CentralWorld Square.
At the Happy Gift Market, visitors will find everything from antique products to trendy, brand-name clothes and fashion items. One section, called “Stars on the Street” will have booths manned by Thai celebrities and TV superstars selling footwear, T-shirts, green gourmet, boutique apparel and even Thai desserts.Although its primary objective is to convey a powerful message that the Thai tourism industry is back to normal, the event has an equally potent purpose to help bring the smiles back to the faces of the Thai people after several months of uncertainty.
Visitors can also stay on for a few days in Bangkok after the event to take advantage of the Amazing Thailand Grand Sale now under way at dozens of department stores, shopping malls, restaurants, spas, and other retail outlets in the Thai capital and nationwide.
