Chiang Rai is famous for its tasty lychees. Therefore, this fair is the ideal opportunity to enjoy this fruit. And certainly, you can buy as many as you would like at very reasonable prices. Of course, local entertainment and beauty contests will be performed to add colour to the fair. Many beautiful handicrafts are also available for purchase.
To celebrate the harvest of the fruit, a Lychee Fair will be held on May 15-17 at the Sri Kaud Old market in the Muang Chiang Rai district. The fair features sales and exhibitions of lychees, other agricultural products and local handicrafts as well as a Miss Lychee beauty pageant and cultural performances.
