We highlighted the magical charms of the architectural Buddhist art of Wat Rong Khun, or the so-called 'White Temple', ranked one of the 10 most beautiful temples in the world, for visitors to experience the sensational rays of colorful lights illuminating the temple's structure, back-dropped by Chiang Rai's night sky. During the one-month show period, the festival attracted over 25,000 domestic and international tourists, boosting local tourism for the region, as well as showing the world about the greatness of the glorified Thai art.
