WATCH: Events This Upcoming Weekend – Feb 11-14, 2016 – around Thailand
Now just in case you haven’t remembered, Sunday is Valentines Day – a day for romantic gestures and candle lit dinners. But for some, it is the perfect day to take the ultimate act of love – getting married. Now Thailand has long been a destination of choice for many couples wanting to marry, but since the late nineties it has been home to one of the more unique valentines celebrations in the world;
Underwater Wedding Festival in Trang, Thailand
Recognized by the Guinness Book of World Records as the largest such event in the world, couples gather from all around the world to express their love for each other beneath the waves near the tropical paradise of Koh Kradan, just off the coast of Trang. Now in its 20th year, the festival will be held from the 12th to 14th of February, with the actual ceremonies taking place on Valentines Day itself.
Dok Siew Blooming Festival in Chiang Rai
February is traditionally a time when the mountains of Northern Thailand spring to life in a blaze of vibrant colours thanks to the Chongko or Dok Siew flowers that bloom at this time of year. This natural spectacle is made all the more impressive by seasonal fog, which blankets the landscape, resulting in some truly breathtaking views. To celebrate this natural wonder, the Dok Siew Blooming Festival is held each year, and this year will take place from February 13th to 15th in Phu Chi Fah, Terng district Chiang Rai Province Northern Thailand.The event also includes a wide range of spectacular art and cultural performances from northern tribe people as well as thrilling sport competitions.
