AsiaRooms.com - Celebrate Boon Klang Bang on a trip to Pattaya

June 02, 2010 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel News
AsiaRooms.com can announce that anyone who has booked Pattaya hotels during July could find that they have the opportunity to witness some traditional Thai celebrations.

During the sixth lunar month, which is July in the western calendar, locals from all over Pattaya and the surrounding villages will come together to celebrate Boon Klang Bang.

The date of this festival varies from year to year, with one of the village elders given the responsibility of deciding when Boon Klang Bang will take place.

People staying in Thailand hotels who are in the area when Boon Klang Bang is going on will be able to see various religious ceremonies held at temples throughout the day.

There are numerous temple complexes in and around Pattaya - such as Wat Yannasangwararam that features several different pagodas in various architectural styles - and Wat Chai Mongkhon, which can be found in the centre of the city.

Another popular place of worship is the golden Buddha statue found on Pratamnak Hill.

Following the religious ceremonies, which are said to rid the area of bad luck, many of the locals play traditional Thai folk games before sharing a meal with one another.

Boon Klang Bang also often coincides with the Phanatnikhom Basketware Festival, which is held at around the same time.
