On 22nd and 23rd May, the T-Pop Festival 2015 will be held to promote a positive image of the country and travelling to Thailand for Thai and foreign visitors. Many Thai singers are very popular in both Thailand and other countries, especially China, South Korea, Hong Kong and Japan. Many people from those countries visit Thailand to attend stage performances of the Thai artists they admire.
To promote tourism in Thailand and encourage foreign fans of Thai singers to travel here, the TAT is organising the T-Pop Festival 2015 Thailand from 3 p.m. to 10 p.m. on these two days at the Royal Thai Army Division 15 in Ram Rachaniwes Military Camp, locally known as Ban Puen Palace, in Phetchaburi.
