         Having created a Bua Tong flower field, a garden of various flowers, and a field of LED lights to welcome tourists, EGAT will open the hybrid ‘Mae Moh Festival 2021’ under the concept of ‘EGAT for ALL @ Mae Moh Smart City.’ The whole country can view the virtual festival on November 19, 2021 via Facebook Live: Mae Moh Festival.


         Mr. Prajuab Doncommul, Assistant Governor - Mae Moh Mine of the Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand (EGAT) revealed that EGAT Mae Moh together with Lampang Province are preparing the ‘Mae Moh Festival 2021’ which is an important year-end event of Lampang Province that the Tourism Authority of Thailand has included in the annual travel calendar. The festival this year is a hybrid festival held at EGAT Mae Moh with various attractions prepared for tourists who are interested in travelling here under the New Normal measures in order to lower tourist density. Visitors can also travel virtually to watch the official opening ceremony and attend the seminar titled ‘Mae Moh Smart City’ on November 19, 2021 from 9 am - 12 pm via Facebook Live: Mae Moh Festival.



         This year’s festival is held under the concept of ‘EGAT for ALL @ Mae Moh Smart City’ to show that EGAT belongs to everyone and works for everyone, and is consistent with the Mae Moh Smart City Project of Lampang Province which was declared a developing smart city of Thailand by the Subcommittee on Driving and Managing Smart City Projects. EGAT held a Mae Moh Smart City Exhibition in front of the Mae Moh Mine Museum to tell the story of driving the community of Mae Moh District towards development, long-term self-reliance, as well as having a good environment suitable for sustainable living, even though the Mae Moh Mine and Power Plant will be decommissioned in 2051, by emphasizing on community participation to develop alongside EGAT.



         EGAT Mae Moh decorated the Commemoration Park, botanical garden, and surrounding area with various winter flowers, including the Bua Tong flower field that has started to bloom beautifully. Here tourists can see the country’s only 180-degree view of a coal mine basin. During nighttime, the festival is also illuminated by LED lights to welcome visitors. The festival adheres to COVID-19 preventive measures and is open every day until 8 pm.

         As for visitors who are unable to travel to the actual location, they can travel virtually to see the beauty of Mae Moh Festival via maemoh-festival.egat.co.th which includes the Mae Moh Smart City Virtual Exhibition as well as a 360-degree Virtual Tour of highlight locations and attractions in EGAT Mae Moh and Mae Moh District, such as Mae Moh Power Plant, the botanical garden, the Commemoration Park, Ban Moh Luang Community, Ratanakhuha Temple (or Pha Kluai Cave), and the special Step Up Market; an online store where they can browse community products of Moh Mae District; which are also shown at the 3D Virtual Exhibition.



         “EGAT hopes that this year’s Mae Moh Festival will be a part of sending year-end happiness to Thais as always. We invite visitors to enjoy the beautiful nature and cool breeze at EGAT Mae Moh. Tourists who are unable to travel here can virtually visit the festival from November onwards,” Mr. Prajuab Doncommul said.
