Phi Ta Khon, a Festival of Multi-Coloured Ghouls and Goblins!

 

Join in the unique experience with a special offer from Loei Palace Hotel during June 2016 

 

Nestled in the north-eastern corner of Thailand is the town of Dan Sai in Loei province. Each year, this usually tranquil town awakens as masked “ghosts” and “spirits” dance through the streets in a grand parade, marking the first day of the Phi Ta Khon Festival.

 

 

Local legends remain undecided on how this festival began, but today, it has become one of Thailand’s unique festivities, happening each year on the first weekend after the sixth full moon. This year, the festivities take place on 24 to 26 June. The three-day event begins with the residents assembling in decked out “ghost” costumes to invoke protection from the local spirits. The second day is Rocket Festival, where home-made bamboo rockets or Bang Fai are launched into the skies, in hopes of producing plentiful rainfall. On the third day, crowds gather at the local temples to receive blessings from Buddhist monks.

 

To help guests join in the fun, Loei Palace is offering the Phi Ta Khon Festival Package, with a special rate of 2,400 THB ++ for a two-night stay in a Superior room. The offer is valid for stays from 1 to 30 June 2016.

 

The package includes:

 

-        Complimentary welcome drink and cold towel

 

-        One special Thai set dinner menu at Botun or at Wine de Bay restaurant

 

-        Guaranteed early check-in from 12:00 and late checkout until 14:00

 

-        Complementary Wi-Fi during the stay

 

Loei Palace, member of the ONYX Hospitality Group, is conveniently located in the heart of the city and offers comfortable accommodation with 156 spacious guest rooms and suites, great facilities and warm hospitality. 

 

Getting there: Loei province is located 540 kilometres from Bangkok, about 7-8 hours away by car. Alternatively, guests can fly to Udon Thani Airport, and arrange a car service from the airport to the hotel.
