ANN/THE NATION – From a 15-metre (m)-tall inflatable bear to a stack of 150 pieces, a Bangkok riverside mall has all kinds of local and international kites to enchant enthusiasts.
The kite festival at Terminal 21 Phra Ram 3 offers visitors a spectacular, colourful experience until Sunday. Among the highlights are a 15m-tall pink bear and a 12m-tall green Thai monster called Hayuk.
The monster was designed by a Thai kite-flying champion and is being displayed in public for the first time, the organisers said.
Apart from an inflatable whale and goldfish, there is also a 7m inflatable beagle called Puppy, which was submitted by a foreign team.
In addition to kite displays, there are also demonstrations on flying sport kites, including quad-line and dual-line stunt kites.
