Wonderfruit Festival: Hippest Festival in Asia! @WonderfruitFest

By Abigail Javellana

Wonderfuit Festival 2015

Wonderfruit, is an international Music & Arts Festival set in Thailand’s backpacker heartland Siam Country Pattaya, is said to be one of the hippest festivals in Asia.

Although known to be a sin city, Pattaya is far from that with it’s long stretch white sand beach, lush hills, creeks, and well-manicured lawns are reminiscent of the world-famous Coachella.

We love the various workshops held every day, enriching ourselves with the arts, yoga, and health, it is definitely a perfect venue for an adventure filled with an exciting music line-up, yummy feasts, and nature activities that can be enjoyed by the whole family.

It zeroes in on advocating creative cultures, eco-friendliness, and sustainable living. You could say, it has the same change-making concept as to Philippine’s very own Malasimbo.

Here’s a short photo essay of Wonderfruit’s festivities last December 17-20, 2015…

Mystery Manila is a simulated game experience that challenges you and a maximum of 5 friends to bring out your inner Sherlock Holmes and solve a mystery within 60 minutes.

We tried one of Mystery Manila’s new room in Century City Mall called Virtual Voyage. We played the roles of being volunteers in an experimental program to test the boundaries of virtual reality.
