Held at Siam Country Club, Pattaya – two hours drive from Bangkok – the festival is where “barefoot luxury meets awe-inspiring architecture and natural adventures.”

  • Festival-goers can stay on site in luxury “glamping” accommodation, or can shack up at neighboring partner hotels.
  • Four-day passes cost HK$1,190, kids under 12 enter free.
  • At the time of writing, Flights to Bangkok on the first day of the festival  – returning on the last day – are HK$1,096, with tax, on AirAsia. Alternatively, enter code Wo01fr10 when searching for Thai Airways flights to unlock flights from HK$1,250 economy return, or HK$3,000 business class.
