Island of Love in Sukhothai on Valentine’s Day

February 8, 2014


This is where I will be going next weekend. From 14-16 February  2014, there will be a “Love of Sukhothai” festival marking the annual Valentine’s Day. Friday 14th February is also Makha Bucha Day, a religious holiday. It is expected that 99 couples will attend this event and fly over the heart-shaped island in balloons. I don’t really know much about this place yet, but it looks really cool. There seems to be a religious structure on the island. The lake itself also seems to be shaped like a heart. I probably won’t get a chance to ride in a balloon, but at least I have my drone to get some aerial pictures. I just have to be careful that I don’t crash into any of the balloons.

      I have just posted some pictures from the visit to Heart Island. As always, if you follow me on Twitter and Facebook you can see these pictures live throughout my trip.
