Thainess can be found in many of Thailand’s annual festivals, but we have also created new events to enhance the awareness of the Thai way of happiness, and this T-POP Festival 2015 fits perfectly in our calendar of unique events to experience “Thainess” because many Thai pop stars have become popular internationally, especially in China, Hong Kong, South Korea and Japan.”
