Whether you're into camels or not, the Pushkar Camel Fair attracts a lot of people and animals. It's the busiest but most exciting time to travel in Rajasthan, India's desert state. You'll wear out your camera at this colorful five-day event held sometime in October and November.
Loi Krathong, along with Yi Peng, is one of the most visually mesmerizing festivals in Asia. Thousands of candle-powered lanterns fill the sky along with fireworks while krathongs (small candlelit boats) are floated on rivers. Chiang Mai, or elsewhere in northern Thailand, is the place to be. Dates vary but Loi Krathong is most often observed in November. The festive holiday is a favorite for locals and travelers alike and so accommodations and transportation will be crowded in Chiang Mai, the epicenter of the festival.
The monthly party held at Haad Rin on the island of Koh Phangan is a legend. Don't go near the event unless you're willing to join the all-night dancing fun. Parties aren't always on the exact night of the full moon because of many Buddhist holidays that coincide, so check Full Moon Party dates before you go.
This annual event is sometimes in November or December. The festival is one of the most significant film festivals in Asia.
