Whimsical wonder and immersive entertainment
December isn’t all about Christmas. The weather in our part of the world is pretty perfect, and there are plenty of exciting events going on that make the most out of it. One that you may not have heard of that we’re dying to check out is the eco-conscious, cross-cultural, music and arts festival ‘Wonderfruit’ in tranquil Thailand…
What is Wonderfruit?
Imagine a weekend of wonderful artistic creativity, wellness workshops, a myriad of musical delights and a strong sense of community and collaboration. Wonderfruit offers all this and more in the stunning setting of Pattaya, just a stone’s throw away from Bangkok. Not only will you be able to enjoy international performances from the likes of Mos Def and Rhye, but you’ll also be in awe of the spectacular stage and fantastical structures designed by the folks behind Coachella and Boom festival. You’ll also witness the world premiere of the iy_projects, a three year light and sound project by award winning music producer Jon Hopkins and artist Chris Levine. To sate your appetite through all the festivities, you can feast on the best of Asia’s food trends created with ingredients sourced from an on-site organic farm and curated by Asia’s Best 50 Restaurants winner Chef Gaggan. Sounds pretty good by us!
The words “festival” and “Thailand” are already enough to spark our interest! And this isn’t just any ordinary festival. Wonderfruit plans to be fully sustainable in 5 years time, and we love how it promotes mindful living and encourages festival-goers to think about their environmental responsibility. Having this altruistic element to the festival makes it even more enjoyable – who doesn’t love partying for a good cause?
What’s more, if camping isn’t really your thing then Wonderfruit will have you covered with an incredible ‘glamping’ experience. Think luxury safari tents that can house four people and include air-conditioning (perfect for the Thai temperature!) and real beds. You can enjoy all the best of what this festival has to offer – from the awesome art installations to the enchanting music – and rest up in luxury on-site after. Sign us up…
So if you’re looking for the coolest way to spend the winter holiday, make sure you book tickets now. It’s only a short flight from Hong Kong and we promise, you won’t have experienced anything like it before. Forget about Christmas this December – it’s all about Wonderfruit!
