Sydney is full of fabulous festivals. We embrace the cultural diversity and the fact that food brings us all together. We enjoy a diverse range of cuisines but Thai food happens to be one of our most popular. Thailand also offers affordable holidays enabling just about anyone the opportunity to discover the beauty and culture of a country rich in history, tradition and stunning tropical locations.

Soon you can discover even more about beautiful Thailand without even leaving Sydney. The 9th annual Thailand Grand Festival will be held at Tumbalong Park in Darling Harbour. This two-day event will commence 12-13 March.

Food stalls from Sydney's top Thai restaurants will be dishing up a tantalising array of tasty treats.

You can watch beautiful dances like the Fon Leb or Fingernail Dance, a famous dance from the North of Thailand, or Rum Klong Yao, a lively colourful dance to the beat of a slow drum. Or you might prefer Pong Lang, a quick exciting dance from Northeastern region of Thailand.

I have to admit that Thai massages are my type of pamper. The masseuse instinctively knows exactly where my tension is and will work their magic until there are no more knots. No doubt a visit to the Thai Massage Pavilion will relieve that working week tension.
