Thailand Festivals and Events 2016

songkran 2016

Over the past 21 years I have traveled all around Thailand and I have seen some really great Thai festivals. I think I have seen all of the major festivals by now. Now I spend a lot of my time looking for the smaller festivals and events that most foreigners haven’t heard about. Below are some of my favourite festivals coming up. Visit My Thailand Photos for some photo albums of my favourite festivals. Don’t forget to also follow me on Twitter and on my travel blog for all the latest Thai Travel News.

In the list below, a red arrow  <== means I plan to attend the event this year. A green arrow  <== means I have been before and liked it.
