The Royal Ploughing Ceremony 2011

photo from Frizz
I posted a blog about the Royal Ploughing Ceremony previously - so have a look.

This year the two white sacred oxen ate the grass and drank the liquor - which means that the country expects plentiful food supplies and flourishing trade...

Here are some beautiful photographs.

Surin Elephant Ordination Festival (15 - 17 May)

I saw this as an advert in the Bangkok Post - it looks interesting.  It features the ordination ceremony of the Thai Kui ethnic group.  There is a procession of Buddhist ordination candidates to their designated shrines - a marvelous display.

World Durian Festival (5 - 15 May)

Well if you really like the fruit I could imagine that this would be a wonderful experience

BUT not the World Durian Festival is not for me.

Getting to Chanthaburi: Air-conditioned buses depart from Bangkok’s Eastern Bus Terminal (Ekkamai) every hour, 
from 4 a.m. - midnight.
