We run our Pyro Holidays only twice per year. Places are strictly limited so early booking is advisable.

April to June are the months when all around our workshop there are weekend Rocket Festivals taking place. The famous Yasathorn Rocket Festival is held during the second week of May in the North east of Thailand where you can see giant rockets being built and launched and the Kut Wa Talai festival in Kalasin is held on the last weekend of May.

We welcome people with absolutely no experience in Pyrotechnics as well as those with years of firework making skills behind them. Our aim is to have each participent make a number of single and multibreak shells from scratch. People who have been out before or those with proven previous building experience may at our discretion be able to build bigger and more complicated shells with minimal supervision.

We offer holidays of 12 and 22 day duration and we plan each trip to include time at our workshop shell building and making other fireworks as well as taking trips around the country to visit places of interest and see the real Thailand. If you want to come with a partner or someone who does not want to take part in the shell building activities we have great alternative activities and trips during the time 'the pyros' are at the workshop.
