October 23, 2011 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel News
Thailand visitors will be able to enjoy a celebration of friendship and local culture during next month's Silk Phuk Siew Festival and Red Cross Fair.
Running from November 29th to December 10th this year, the event has been bringing the people of the area together since 1980 and centres around the friendship-making ritual of Phuk Siew.
In local culture, the principle of siew refers to the most inseparable of affectionate relationships between two people, whose ties extend across both of their families.
Phuk Siew is organised concurrently with the local silk festival and Red Cross Fair in Khon Kaen, meaning visitors to the area can enjoy a diverse programme of events, starting with a lavish opening ceremony procession.
Further activities include silk weaving exhibitions, sales of local products, folk performances and a beauty contest, as well as an arts and cultural corner that offers fun for the whole family.
Those attending the event can also see a range of cultural attractions in Khon Kaen, including Khon Kaen City Museum and the Buffalo Conservation Village.
Culture vultures can find a wide selection of Thailand hotels at, including the Pullman Khon Kaen Raja Orchid.
