Salt festival 2018

Post by HHTel » Thu Mar 08, 2018 6:44 pm

My daughter in the UK sent me info about a 'Salt Festival' in Petchaburi. Seems there are salt statues, a salt museum along with seafood stalls etc. Looks worth a visit.
The Art of Salt festival is taking place from 16 to 18 March 2018. The event is being organised to promote Thailand’s largest scenic salt road in Phetchaburi province. The 3-day event features a wide range of activities surrounding, of course, salt. These include special talks – about salt – at folk salt museum, workshop on making plain salt, experiment salt spa, and marvel at the bird sculptures made of salt, as well as learn about salt farming and life of salt farmers.

The event also highlights famous desserts and souvenirs from Ban Laem, as well as booths selling fresh and dried seafood products from nearby fishing villages. The event takes place from 4 p.m. to 11 p.m. at KM 41, Rural Highway SS 2021 (Scenic Route), opposite PTT Bang Kaew petrol station, Ban Laem, Phetchaburi.
