Year 2014 has started in earnest, with the 1st festival in the region having been completed. We have got a few verbal invites for 2014, with a confirmed invite and another pending the official invitation.
1) Cha-Am International Kite Festival in Thailand (8th-9th Mar) – The team attend this bi-annual festival 2 years ago and we have confirmed our attendance for this year’s event. Seems like the location will be changed to Cha-Am beach this time round. Sun, wind and water is a perfect mix for a kite festival. We’ve attended this event and you can read about it here
2) Vung-Tau International Kite Festival in Vietnam (8th – 12th May) – Confirmed and on! Tickets booked and ready! Our trip write-up is here
3) Miao-Li County International Kite Festival (17th – 21st Oct) – It’s confirmed! The team will be there! Our trip report is up here!
4) Qatar International Kite Festival (October ’14) –
We are in the process of submitting our application. Keeping our fingers crossed since this would be a new location for us. Looking forward to good news! Not gonna happen 😦
