We’re a little bit dubious as to how the Thai Electronic Music Festival (傣迪电音粉色沙滩狂欢节) is actually going to be and we don’t really understand how a week long music festival could be ending daily at 9pm, but the Water Park at Mission Hills is hosting a music festival through to the 12 of this month. Price RMB 77 for adults, RMB 38 for children.
Daily until Sep 12: All day, ends 9pm. RMB77 per adult, RMB38 per child. Water Park at Mission Hills. See listing.
September 10-12: Sexy Cos
Everyone’s favorite gay bar has an even more risque theme than usual for this weekend's parties, but don't worry if you aren't comfortable being (un)dressed to the nines in public, as most of the crowd will be wearing the Haikou norm of t-shirts and flip-flops.
Fri-Sun Sept 10-12, 10.30pm: Free entry. Frey. See listing.
