Official description

On February 10-14, more than 30 hot air balloons from 14 countries will fill Chiang Rai's sky with a spectacle of colour, light and sound during the Singha Park Chiang Rai Balloon Fiesta from tomorrow to Sunday.

Hailed as the biggest hot air balloon festival in the Asean region, the festival will feature a grand performance of fancy balloons from all over the world, including the US, England, France, Japan, China and Thailand.

There will be a competition by world-class pilots from 4.30-5.30pm daily, followed by a nightly performance of "Balloon Night Glow", with the projection of vivid lighting, sounds and colours by the lake, from 8-8.30pm.
