Ubon Ratchathani’s famous candle festival will be marked in line with the “new normal”, with the beautifully sculpted giant candles being put on display at public parks instead of being paraded around the city to prevent the spread of Covid-19.

The display will be accessible three times a day – 10am, 2pm and 6pm – to visitors who have registered online.The not-to-be missed extravagant candle festival is held in Ubon Ratchathani every year to mark Asalha Bucha and the start of Buddhist Lent, where hordes of tourists, both local and foreign, gather to admire the extravagantly creative giant candles as well as enjoy traditional dance and music shows.

The festival this year is being held from Friday to July 7.
