Welcome to the Homepage for the Salsa Bangkok Fiesta 2011
After all the negative news we are happy to host the festivals and are one of the first events in the capital after the crisis has receded. Bangkok remains one of the most exciting metropoles of the world – malls, markets and most other places in Central or Inner Bangkok are completely dry and have never seen any problems. For your convenience we have moved all locations to Central Bangkok, so all venues are in walking distance in Central Sukhumvit / Asoke area.
While unfortunately due to various reasons the Aussie delegation has canceled their trip to Bangkok (no surprise with the undifferentiated coverage) many performers and instructors will be there to party with you and show their skills and give their workshops.
Bachata guru Inaki Fernandes from Spain/UK and Salsa Romantica dancers Vineet and Sahiba from Mumbai; Gupson Pierre from Singapore/Canada, Lion Gak from Korea, Asian champion Reyno from Indonesia and many more. All the top instructors and dancers residing in Bangkok are supporting our event and will be dancing with all the guests from overseas.
This year we have again the support and love from international DJ stars Henry Knowles (New York) and DJ Rodrigo (Japan) supported by Dr. Salsa a.k.a. Roland, who has played on many regional Salsa events in the last years.
We are sure that our neighbouring Salsa scenes from Pattaya, Phuket, Phnom Penh and other locations will come in large numbers to attend the Salsa Fiesta and support the Salsa Scene in our region.

Dear foreign visitors. As most of you know Bangkok is a great place to visit. Recently Bangkok was voted 'World's Best City' by Travel + Leisure magazine. Whatever you think Bangkok is without a doubt one of the most interesting cities in the world with its famous Grand Palace, arguably Asia's best shopping and an exotic mix of old and new. Our multicultural city means that you can find great food and entertainment and the value for money is incredible! Why not combine you passion for Salsa and also take the opportunity to go on holiday for a trip to some of the most beautiful beaches in the world and meet up with some of the most hospitable people in the world. Phuket, Ko Samui or nearby Pattaya are buzzing with people.
Learn from the best! Now we have 20 master classes from international dance instructors on Saturday and Sunday – please apologise some changes due to the absence from our Australian friends. We still have classes on two days for all levels by our international instructors. If you can walk, you can dance!
Venue: Amarin Plaza, 9th & 12th floor. BTS Chidlom Station
The online sale has finished and you can buy your ticket at the door.
Bangkok is full of great hotels and guesthouses for every budget and has arguably the best value for money in the world. If you check the usual bookings site you can find great deals. We are happy to give advice to our visitors.
We recommend you to stay close to Skytrain station Asok / Underground (MRT) station Sukhumvit. You can get a great room rate at Dream Hotel – our Sunday venue – a place where many of our performers stay. For the price of 2,500 THB net you can make a reservation directly to the Dream Hotel via firstname.lastname@example.org under subject “Salsa Fiesta 2011”or Rembrandt Hotel in Sukhumvit 18 – a place where also many of our performers stay via email@example.com under subject Salsa. Otherwise Bangkok is never short of hotels for all budgets. You can find out agoda.com, asiarooms.com or many other hotel booking sites.
We will collect donations for flood victims in the Northern and Western parts of Bangkok and other parts of Thailand. So every support is appreciated. We are currently assessing who would be the best organization to support.
Furthermore this year Salsa Bangkok will support the UN Secretary General’s campaign to end violence against women and we have special Festival Shirts on sale to support this campaign. Every Salsero and Salsera is invited to spread the message “Salseros Say No to end violence against women” as our modest contribution to this serious problem.
