The annual Khon Kaen Countdown is a showcase for Northeastern Thai culture and a memorable way of seeing in the New Year. Recent years have seen the event grow and there are now creative light shows to enjoy as well as music, local cuisine and a firework display.

One of the illuminated attractions will be a giant, decorated Kong Kao Nieo basket, representing the famous receptacles of the local sticky rice - a favorite dish, not only with the people of Issan, but among food lovers the world over.

During the week, famous local artists and musicians will serenade revelers young and old with their music and shows. The festival also offers opportunity for visitors to make merit and hope for good things in the year to come.
