Visit the Hua Hin Jazz Festival from Koh Samui -

April 24, 2010 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel News can announce that people who are intending to stay in Koh Samui hotels will probably be travelling to the island from Bangkok.

If this is the case and there are no particular time constraints on the journey, then it could be worth stopping off in Hua Hin along the way.

For one weekend in June, which is usually around the 12th, the seaside resort will be hosting its annual jazz festival.

Performances will be taking place on open-air stages by the beach and in Phonkingphet public park allowing any visitors to make the most of the beautiful natural surroundings as well as soaking up the atmosphere and enjoying some jazz music.

Every year, the festival attracts thousands of people who flock to see the shows from Thai musicians and international jazz artists.

The resort is located on Thailand's east coast, to the north of Koh Samui, making it an ideal point to stop off on the way to the island for anyone travelling from Bangkok.

People staying in other Thailand hotels may want to make the journey to Hua Hin, particularly if they enjoy jazz music.

All of the concerts are free and many of the participants host jazz music workshops so tourists can try their hand at playing some soulful tunes.
