In the first of our Undiscovered series, Thailand’s eco paradise, Wonderfruit steals our hearts…
In just two weeks times, Wonderfruit will be returning to Pattaya, Thailand from the 16-19 February. Located deep within Thailand’s beautiful countryside, the ultimate cross-cultural live celebration of art not only combines a star-studded lineup and breathtaking scenery, but is also the front runner of the sustainable festivals movement.
Rudimental, Lianne La Havas, Shura, Young Fathers, Simian Mobile Disco and veteran house legend Norman Jay MBE are amongst the long list of eco-warriors showing their support for one of the only carbon-neutral festivals in the world.
Adding to its many accolades, the festival also boasts one of the best wellness programs on the planet. There will be yoga by Danny Paradise – one of the first westerners to adopt Ashtanga yoga and who counts Madonna and Sting among his students – gong baths, martial arts with Ajarn Zhu Qiguo of the Thai-Chinese Shaolin Kungfu school, sacred feminine empowerment dance and more.
Instead of the classic burger van you can enjoy a range of delicious crops harvested directly from the onsite farm. Here guests will have the opportunity to try enjoy world-class culinary experiences, including a sit-down dinner with Gaggan Anand, the award-winning king of progressive Indian cuisine and Asia’s number one chef.
Proving that fun and social responsibility can go hand in hand, Wonderfruit is not only continuing to find new ways of treating our planet with respect but is also paving the way for Thailand’s blossoming festival scene.
So, if you are one of the lucky few in a position to blag a flight to Thailand in the next two weeks, we highly recommend checking this out. Tickets are still available and you can grab yourself a 4-day camping ticket for just 5,500 baht – Roughly £125. Visit the Wonderfruit website for more information.
