Venue: Phuruea National Park, Loei
The 5th Poinsettia Phurua Festival will this year take place from 1 November, 2016 and go on until 31 January, 2017 in Loei, to make the most of the cooler winter weather in Thailand’s northeast. The festival celebrates the festively coloured poinsettia flowers, which are so often associated with Christmas and are in full bloom at this time.
The Poinsettia plants are grown commercially over a vast area making a glorious scarlet carpet that attracts sightseers and photographers from all over the country. But the cool weather is also a great reason to visit the area of Phurea National Park at this time. Visitors revel in the chance to put on warmer winter clothing while exploring the hills and villages.
During the festival, there are lots of attractions including evening lantern displays and classical musical performances, so visits over the Christmas and New Year period can feel very festive. The Poinsetta Phuruea Festival takes place just by the entrance to the Phuruea National Park Amphoe mueng Loei.
