Temple Fair

For those in Khao Lak at the moment or due to be here over the next 6 days, if you want a taste(literally) of a Thai tradition, there is a Temple Fair along the highway to the north of Bang Niang at the site of the new Chong Fah temple. These fairs help to raise funds for the completion of a new temple or to celebrate its opening. It is very Thai with various goods and food stalls and Thai sideshows with music going on until late at night. Great local spectacle and fun!

If you go north along the highway from the Police Boat Memorial site in Bang Niang you cannot miss it as the highway is lit all the way to the entrance to the fair on the highway.

The music, which we can hear from our bungalow, thankfully, stops at Midnight and it's just gone quiet! :-)
