June 20th – November 15th 2018
The Apa Resort Myoko Happiness Illumination is the largest outdoor light display in the world. It covers such a large area with different displays that you should allow yourself about 1.5hrs to walk through the area. The display changes each year so there is always something new for a returning visitor to see. There are many different sections for you to explore.
This years display will be a huge revamp, with many new areas and different light shows. Check out the preview images below for a little sneak peak of what they have planned.
This is a must-see attraction, there is nothing else like this anywhere in the world and it is truly breath-taking to experience.
A few points to note is that the use of tripods for taking pictures is strictly limited to the flat areas. The area is also difficult to navigate for wheel chairs as the hill at the start and end is quite steep and the paths narrow in places.
