Singha Park International Hot Air Balloon 2016
Wonder where to travel this Valentine’s Day? How about going to Chiang Rai Thailand? During this time of the year, the weather is cooling and also the places of interests and the good food in Chiang Rai. On top of that, there will be an International Hot Air Balloon Festival in Singha Park.
If you never heard of Singha Park, you should visit them when you are traveling in Chiang Rai. The park is also known as Boon Rawd Farm by the locals is a new Agro-Tourism Attraction in Chiang Rai. The park is 8,000 hectares in size and situated 450 metres above sea level and spans over 12.9 kilometres. It is a huge park and it was a barley farm and converted to agro-tourism attraction.
The concept of Singha Park is very unique. It is a social enterprise programme, business and tourism project. Hence, they employed about 500 locals and they changed the former barley plantations to tea plantations, seasonal fruits, flowers farms and tourist attractions. Thus, on top of creating new jobs for locals, they also create new tourism attraction and generate income in a different way. What a genius concept!
For the first time, Singha Park will host its first International Balloon Festival 2016 from 10th to 14th February 2016. The grand opening ceremony will be on the 10th February and the competition flights will start thereafter until 14th February.
On top of the activities in the park, you will be greeted with more than 30 colourful hot air balloons in different shapes and designs from 14 countries all around the world. Thus, there will be hot air balloon to view Singha Park from a bird’s eye view.
There will be musical concerts with lots of food during the festival. The best part is you are able to bring your love one to this special occasion as on the 14th February, there will be the day of “Balloon Love” with lots of fun filled activities such as riding twin bicycles, balloon playground as well as light and sound shows.
