KANGAR: Kite-flying is one activity that can boost neighbourly ties and cross-border tourism, said Songkhla Province Governor Amunuay Rongngern. 

As kite-flying and its related activities transcend culture, it was one area for border states such as Perlis to use to boost ties and improve tourism prospects with Thailand, he told reporters after attending the opening of the annual Asean Kite (Wau) Festival at the main stadium here.
