Record numbers flock to Khon Kaen flower festival


A record high of over 300,000 visitors flocked to the annual flower festival in the north eastern province of Khon Kaen this year, averaging around 30,000 a day. The “Amazing International Flower Festival 2019” was held at Bueng Thung Sang Health Garden, from December 17 to January 3.

Although the festival officially ended on Friday, the city will keep the flowers on display for people to take photos.

This year’s fair, which featured hundreds of thousands of flowering plants including winter blooms like tulips, lilies and begonias, also used augmented reality (AR) to give visitors with smartphones an interactive experience. Displays were enhanced by computer-generated images and information to make photo-taking more fun.
