Music lovers heading to Bangkok over the summer might like to visit this year's Asia International Guitar Festival and Competition, held over four days in June.
It may be a fantastic way to experience a range of cultures on Thailand holidays, as a host of different musicians from around the world will perform in the Siam City Hotel, situated on Si Ayuthaya Road.
Beginning on June 16th, each morning will feature a different masterclass, held by one of the visiting virtuosos. The first will be conducted by Cuba's Jorge Luis Zamora and tourists can either watch the lesson for 200 baht (£4) or take part for 500 baht.
From the second day (June 17th), a different competition will take place, where the winners receive the chance to attend one of several concerts in 2012.
Every evening at 20:00 local time, there will be a performance from one of the different troupes. Tickets for these cost 600 baht, which includes a coffee break.
