From today until April 1, the 42th Thailand Tourism Festival is transforming Queen Sirikit National Convention Center into a fun playground that combines Thai tradition and technology to create new visual travel experiences.

Focusing on soft power and subculture, this year's festival is divided into nine zones, and showcases a wide range of creative cultural performances and culinary options from the central, eastern, northern, northeastern and southern regions.

A group of veteran writers, photographers and travel influencers will also get together at the Traveller Bar and Space to share their experiences.

An imitation of Bang Bao Lighthouse on Koh Chang adds tranquil beach vibes to the Colourful Burapha Eastern Village, along with more than 50 shops from Rayong, Chanthaburi, Chon Buri and Trat offering a wide selection of seafood, fresh fruits and local cuisine like durian, spicy fried catfish with curry, and chicken curry with cardamom. There will also be performances from the Royal Thai Navy Music Division and the Alcazar Cabaret Show Pattaya.

Featuring King Narai's Palace in Lop Buri, the Klang Buri Central Village is designed to resemble both a temple fair and a floating market. Here, visitors can warm up for the upcoming Songkran celebration and enjoy pad Thai from Pathum Thani, miang kham lam phya from Nakhon Pathom, Pah Chaliao's khao chae from Nonthaburi and roti samai from Ayutthaya.
