Phi Ta Khon Festival


One of the most colourful and unusual festivals in Thailand is Phi Ta Khon which takes place every year in Dan Sai in Loei Province. The date is not fixed and usually takes place over a period of three days in either June or July. It is often called the Ghost Festival by the English language media due to the masks worn by the participants during the big parade on the second day. If you are planning on going, you need to book your accommodation in advance as all rooms in the area go quickly.
