Long Weekend in Bangkok

Thursday is Buddha Day, a holiday - Yippee!

Friday is Buddhist Lent Day - another holiday - Hurrah!!!

Long weekend!


I decided to take it slow on Thursday, and then go visit the temples and see how Buddhist pray. So I went to Wat Tat Thong near Ekkamai station (supposedly famous amongst Thais for funerals).

 Candles in the wind

Candle in the dark

People light candles during this day (and supposedly a few other Buddhist celebrations too).

Round the temple

And they go round the temple 3 times, anti clockwise.
