coming soon to planet earth

A new multipurpose performance art space is springing up in scenic Pakchong, abutting onto the beautiful Khao Yai National Park. It’s the first installment of what will become a new center of exciting creativity for Thailand. The brainchild of Premika Sucharitkul, sister of the well-known novelist and composer, this is a multidimensional, dynamic space that can do everything from a chamber opera to a book fair, from an art market to a symphony concert. Located two hours from Bangkok, Somtow’s World is located near resorts and restaurants and events there are planned to take advantage of the national park’s numerous visitor facilities.
