Pattaya —

Pattaya City is set to host a grand “Wan Lai Day” on Friday, April 19th, 2024.

The announcement was made at a press conference held on March 28th at Central Pattaya Shopping Center, with Deputy Mayor Ms. Thithiphan Pettrakul presiding alongside representatives from the Tourism Authority of Thailand, Chonburi Province Cultural Office, and Central Pattaya.

The Wan Lai festival will be divided into two sections. The first part, held from 8:00 AM to 12:00 PM at Wat Chai Mongkol, will focus on promoting, conserving, and showcasing the beautiful, cultural side of the Thai Songkran festival. Visitors can expect traditional performances and displays reflecting the essence of Songkran amidst the backdrop of the temple’s peaceful atmosphere.

The afternoon and evening session, from 3:00 PM to 11:00 PM, will transform all of Pattaya Beach into a modern entertainment zone. Renowned Thai and international DJs, including DJ Nadia, DJ Wonder, PP’DREAM, FrenchW, and Ant Emotion Town, will be performing on the grand stage to keep the party going. The highlight of the evening will be a spectacular performance by the legendary rock band “Retrospect,” bringing their hit songs and a full-fledged audio-visual experience to the stage.

Ms. Thithiphan extended a warm invitation to both Thai and foreign tourists to participate in the festivities.

Road closures and plans have not yet been finalised and announced as of press time.
