Aloha UUers,

Chonburi is a major city not far away from Bangkok. It's about 45 minutes drive from the Suvannaphoom airport. She's famous for a beautiful beach and of course fresh seafood!

As you might already know that ukulele is very popular not only in Thailand but all over the world.

Here I have some pictures to share with you.

Pretty girls with ukulele.

The theme of the festival is "Easy Breezy Ukulele" so you can imagine that it's almost like you were in beautiful Hawaii.

That's me with young teenagers who strummed their first chord at the festival and immediately fell in love with the tiny little instrument.

Ukulele is suitable for all ages. I think it's the easiest instrument to play.
