Tom and Tourism Authority of Thailand go to the Phi Ta Khon Festival

Dear Members of the Media,
The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) is delighted to invite you to participate in the Media Fam Trip to the “Phi Ta Khon Festival 2013” from 10 – 12 July 2013 that will be held at a village of Dansai District, Loei Province.   The event is the traditional merit ceremony which has been passed on from generation to generation with the aim to worship spirits, the protectors of the village, and to ask for sufficient rain to arrive in time for the coming farming season.
Many interesting activities will be created; such as, Phi Ta Khon masked procession, Phi Ta Khon Walking Street, tasty local foods fair and OTOP products, and also cultural performances.
Kindly confirm your attendance to ,,,,

So after finding out that I could either commute from Sakon Nakhon to Bangkok to take a Nok Air flight to Loei or a minibus drive from Bangkok to Loei if there are no flights available I decided to drive from Sakon Nakhon to Loei and get the 2 night Tourism Authority of Thailand tour of the event.
It has been 11 years since I last attended the Festival and found it a bit phony, but a willing to check it out with an open mind. To be concise I am not a big fan of Tourism Authority of Thailand and have my doubts. I will be doing as much video as possible so that you can judge for yourself what goes on at the festival
