Pattaya International Fireworks Competition

The Pattaya International Fireworks Competition will be taking place again this year on December 16th & 17th at Pattaya Beach. Fireworks will be displayed from teams around the world including: Thailand, Italy, USA, United Arab Emirates, Denmark, Japan, China, Australia and Germany. There will also be a fireworks display that will span over 3 km in honor of His Majesty the King’s 84th birthday coming on December 5th.

Buddha knows that there are fireworks all year round in Pattaya for one reason or another and sometimes for no reason at all but the Pattaya International Fireworks Competition is really a sight to behold and can be seen from almost everywhere in Pattaya. The beach is a great spot to watch the fireworks but it’s generally very crowded, other great spots include Pattaya viewpoint looking down on Pattaya beach and any hotel balcony above the 5th floor facing the beach.

As well as fireworks you can bet there will be lots of great Thai food on offer up and down beach road as well as refreshments and trinkets to buy and probably a few concerts set up at strategic points.

The Pattaya Fireworks Competition is a great night out to share with friends and family so be sure not to miss it!

    Talen, I haven’t tried nightshots to any extent – fireworks would be a good start (that’s IF I’d get my butt down there ;-)

      Cat, I really just started about 6 months ago with night shots… I went up to pattaya viewpoint and messed with settings all night to try and get some cool shots of one of the major roads with traffic…slow setting so all the tailights would blur, some actually turned out well…lot of trial and error oh, and your bracketing tip has helped out immensely.

    The top photo is amazing, did you take it some time in the past because if so then it’s a work of art. To get one exploding firework in a picture is awesome but two…that’s showing off.

    The firework competition will have a perfect backdrop setting on Pattaya beach and I’m sure it will grab lots of attention.

    My camera’s real crap at night and to try and take exploding fireworks with it would be near impossible. Good luck with yours.

      Martyn, I took that pic about six months ago during another night of fireworks…I was trying to figure out night shots , out of 400 or so pics 5 were good lol…gonna try again this week and see what I can do. I got a few decent shots on Loy Krathong but I didn’t have my tripod with me so most didn’t turn out again.

    This time I won’t commit the same mistake of not being there. It would be disappointing to wait another year. Maybe I can take great shots of the event as well. Thank you for the reminder.

      Arch, I’m not sure what is going on. The fireworks indeed didn’t happen last night . Everyone has reported the same dates as I have and now I’m hear it will be Sat & Sun and also hearing as you said it will be delayed until mid December….TiT

    last time i took a load of pics from my room with a small tripod, without that it is hard to keep the camera steady.

    Arch I finally got confirmation that it has been moved to December 16-17. Reason: lack of tourists. Would have been nice if they let people know…TiT
