Bangkok (NNT/VNA) – Visitors were attracted to Khon Kaen over the weekend to view a display of 100,000 flowers planted in Bueng Tung Sarng park, which is ready to host an international flower event.

The park is hosting the Amazing International Flower Festival in Khon Kaen 2018, from December 17 to January 3, 2019 but has already attracted a steady stream of visitors from within the province itself and from across the country. The fair is presented over 15 zones featuring a range of different flowers arranged in attractive displays.

Khon Kaen Mayor Theerasak Teekayuphan announced that the festival’s theme is “Castle of Flowers” and that among the 15 zones is a flower archway, a flower castle, a terrace of flowers, vertical plants and a fountain, as well as zones featuring flowers formed into animals and dinosaurs. The festival has collected over 100,000 different plants for the exhibition of flowers.

Sanya Niltaraj, a traveler from Sakon Nakhon, said on Sunday that he decided to visit the festival after hearing about it during a recent visit to Khon Kaen. He remarked he looks forward to seeing the flowers once they are in full bloom.

Supakit Sritanan, a student from Khon Kaen University, said that he expects to visit the festival once again during its run to take more photos to post online. – NNT/VNA
