International festival of music and dance is an annual event which spans a period of five weeks with over a thousand artistes performing each year. This year’s edition of the festival is set to take place from the 13th of September to 26th of October. The festival was created with the intention of building a positive image for the city of Bangkok while helping to enhance the country’s standard of performing arts. With an audience that grows year after year, the festival continues to evoke interest of the youth in classical arts. Having hosted the first ever Broadway musical in Bangkok, the festival features a wide variety of spectacles including opera and ballet performances. Those who visit the city to enjoy this vibrant festival can choose to base themselves at a place such as Somerset Sukhumvit Thonglor Bangkok.
