CHIANG RAI – Wat Rong Khun aka White Temple one of the most recognized temples of Thailand, will light up each evening this year-end with a 100 million baht (US$3.2 million) project by Index Creative Village and Thai visual artist Chalermchai Kositpipat.
Wat Rong Khun Light Fest will mark the first time that the White Temple, which receives over 10,000 visitors a day and over two million people a year, is open to visitors at night, according to Chalermchai, who is also the builder of the popular attraction in Chiang Rai.
Running from November 22 to December 22 this year, the multimedia show will use over 100 lasers and 3D mapping techniques to bring an all new night-time experience at the temple. Two performances – each lasting 60 minutes – are available daily at 18.30 and 20.30 during this period, and are limited to only 1,000 seats per show.
