      Cat, yup …another festival I would love to be around for…next year for sure.

      They actually did a great job on the whole website for the festival but of course in true Thai style they waited too long to roll it out.

      Imagine how much better these events would be attended if they had the foresight to actually promote the event 4-6 months before it happens instead of a month.

        Goodness. Yes, I do see what you mean about their website.

        Seems like a real possibility of a decent business opportunity in SE Asia (not just Thailand)…

        There is decent money to be made training companies to promote on time. To do most anything on time.

        Westerners take classes on the same, why not SE Asia?
