For the first time ever, the Nawarat Bridge Chiang Mai has will be green, only for St Patrick’s Day, the National Day of Ireland! A symbol of friendship between Ireland and Thailand and all the people across the world.
More than 70 million people around the world claim links to the island of Ireland and St Patrick’s Day is a truly unique opportunity to reconnect them with their heritage as well as welcoming new and returning visitors, business people and students. 2021 also marks 47 years of highly valued diplomatic relations between the Kingdom of Thailand and Ireland.
This is a Global Greening initiative in partnership with the Embassy of Ireland in Thailand and the with the generous support of Office of the Governor of Chiang Mai, Charoenrit Sanguansat,
Nawarat Bridge joins other important icons in being lit up in green, such as the Sydney Opera House, Wat Arun, the Eiffel Tower, Niagra Falls, the Great Wall of China, the Thailand Cultural Centre, the Leaning Tower of Pisa, amongst hundreds of others.
If you want to get into some St Patrick’s Day festivities then there is nowhere else in town like the UN Irish Pub on Ratwitthi. While culture and religion traditionally mark the special day, the UN Irish Pub marks it with the more popular party time. For the past many decades Guinness is swilled, jigs and jugged, and good ole good times had to mark the special day. 10% off all menu items between 5pm-7pm and live music from 6pm, including our favourite, The Itinerants.
