Last year some of the members of the Bangkok Hackerspace organized a trip to the Isaan Rocket festival in Yasothon. It was quite a lot of fun and I thinks its fair to say we all enjoyed ourselves. We had planned on coming again this year, and I just noticed it is this week!
If anyone else is interested in attending, let me know so we can arrange travel.
Last year we all took Nok Air into Ubon Rachathani on the Friday, then flew back on Sunday night. The tickets on Nok Air are just under 5k THB.
