Shortcuts To:

Chak Phra, an activity occurring on the same day as the Thot Phapa ceremony, a form of merit-making when Buddhists offer saffron robes to monks and donate money to temples, at the end of the Buddhist Rains Retreat. Thot Phapa takes places at dawn, before Chak Phra, the ceremony when Buddha images are placed on elaborately decorated carriages which then are pulled by local people in land and water-borne processions. These events are accompanied by cultural performances and traditional music.

October 23 - 31, 2007: Tapi River Bank, Surat Thani Province.
