In tribute to continuing excellent diplomatic relations between the kingdoms of Morocco and Thailand, the Sukosol Bangkok will host a 10-day celebration of Moroccan culture beginning on Friday (March 24).
Moroccan Ambassador Abdelilah El Housni and hotelier Kamala Sukosol, president of the ThaiMoroccan Friendship Association, announced the grand plans last week.
The festival will highlight Moroccan arts, entertainment, natural produce and particularly cuisine, with delicacies prepared by a talented chef flying in from Casablanca for the occasion.
Moroccan cuisine is famous for its outstanding flavours and aromas. These and the marvellous Mint Tea Ceremony earned a place on Unesco’s Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity list in 2010.
Consider too the health benefits of arganoil, the exceptional handicrafts and traditional henna tattoos – all of which can be sampled during the festival. There’ll also be an exhibition of a Thai photographer’s images of amazing scenes and places in Morocco.
The celebration will continue through April 2, with Moroccan cuisine on offer at the hotel’s restaurant Patummat for lunch, dinner and Sunday Brunch.
