Sounds great! I'll be there.  Where can I get more details? Probably worth staying over for a couple of days.  Is there there any other fun to be had there?

Love the humour herein; Sattahip in lights.  It's a Navy town with hot & cold running dogs everywhere.

Don't be getting hotel rooms for this

 

In the past it was very poorly done with a temporary stage that was so high up only the last rows could see the performance

 

Maybe it will be better since that area has changed a lot with the new road and increased building at Silver Lake

still sounds boring 

And in the past years 

It is only about Thai people drinking and driving 

This will just add up in the traffic list of death toll 

Be careful out there thai people love drinking and driving because Buddha protecting them and of course they are the best drivers in the world

A friend went there yesterday and informed me that this year it's a very "small" festival, a very "cheap" one. :sad:

Apparently there is only the main stage where the dancers will come tonight, but no decorations all over the park, no field of thousands lights, no fair, no... no... no … :sad:

It's just not worth this year the 20 km trip from Pattaya. Sad.
