PATTAYA, THAILAND, February 05, 2010 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Travellers staying in Thailand hotels this year may like to experience the Pattaya Festival.
Held in the popular coastal resort each April, the event is a week-long celebration involving music, dancing and colourful parades in the streets.
The festival was established to promote tourism in Pattaya, which is now one of the most famous destinations in the country.
Highlights of the week include the Miss Pattaya beauty contest and sandcastle-building competitions on the beach.
There are also stalls selling local delicacies, souvenirs and other products, as well as cultural performances and Thai boxing demonstrations.
However, people using Pattaya hotels during the festival should not expect a celebration of authentic Thai culture, as the event is intended to showcase the city's cosmopolitan status.
The beach also hosts concerts and a spectacular fireworks display as the festival comes to a close.
Located about 165 kilometres south-east of Bangkok, Pattaya is known among travellers for its golf courses and wide array of aquatic sports.
Other nearby attractions include the Sanctuary of Truth, a large wooden building resembling a temple that is being built by the eccentric Thai millionaire Lek Viriyaphant.
