Songkran Festival Chiang Mai Tha Pae Gate War
Thailand, there are two most lively festivals, one is the Sky Lantern Festival in November and the other is the Songkran Festival in April. The time of the
Water Festival is fixed, and the 13-15th of April every year is also the New Year of Thailand.
Tha Pae Gate is the most lively place in the Songkran Festival. Around the ancient city is a vendor selling water-splashing tools. We bought two water guns, which is a big witch compared to other people's buckets and pickup trucks. .
In the Songkran Festival, in addition to the local children, the most embarrassing to belong to Europe and the United States foreigners ~
Thailand Songkran Festival | Chiang Mai "battlefield", the most lethal of the bucket
the first day of the Songkran Festival, starting from where you live, all the way to Tha Paemen. Although it is only about 8 o'clock in the morning, there are already many friends who can hold "weapons" on the road. If Chiang Mai is usually at this time, it must have not yet awakened. Today, everything is like brewing a "war."
Tapmen is the most lively place during the Songkran Festival. The streets around the ancient city walls are filled with water-filled props. I used to think that there was only a water gun at the Songkran Festival. Later I learned that there are so many kinds of water guns, and there are buckets (very destructive props). We only bought a large water gun at first, thinking that we had the upper hand. I didn't expect it to be vulnerable in front of the bucket.
Thailand Songkran Festival is a special festival not to be missed~
The Songkran Festival Day of the Songkran Festival is the traditional festival of Thailand. It is held every year from April 13 to 15 and is also the New Year of Thailand.
During the Songkran Festival, people not only poured water on each other, but also held various special events in the local area. The Chiang Mai Beauty Contest is one of them.
This year's beauty pageant was held on the 13th in Tha Pae Gate. The live TV broadcast on Thailand was a live broadcast. As a tourist, although they couldn't understand what they said, it was a good experience to be able to enjoy the scene!
Thailand's beauty contest is outside, no need to buy tickets, no need to make an appointment, it can be said that very close to the people.
The scene grabbed the jury of the judges under the stage. It is said that the last Mr. Chiang Mai was really handsome.
Part of the eastern wall, Tha Phae Gate is a highly intact city gate. Originally, the ancient city of Chiang Mai was surrounded by a wall about 2 meters high enclosed in red brick walls. Later, most of the buildings disappeared over the years. The surviving Tha Phae Gate became a very well-known attraction in Chiang Mai and a landmark. The red wall and blue sky are beautiful in the morning or at dusk when few people are around. Photographers from all over the world have come here to capture the beautiful scene of the city gate from different angles. On Sunday, the market stalls start here. When the market is closed, tourists and locals feed the pigeons in the square in front of the Tha Phae Gate. The environment is very comforting.
