New Year Celebrations in Thailand
Magnificent fireworks are conducted in various parts of Thailand on both New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day. People are seen wishing each other a Happy New Year in their native language, i.e. สวัสดีปีใหม่ / S̄wạs̄dī pī h̄ım̀ and paying a year-end visit to their parents and loved ones.
Both the locals and tourists can be seen visiting Chiang Mai and Pattaya, two of the popular tourist destinations, to kick start their New Year amidst natural beauty engulfed in both traditional and modern customs. Many Thai natives visit the local Buiddhist Temples to “make the merit” by offering donations, alms and gifts to the Buddhist monks. On New Year’s Day, Thai Buddhists listen to religious sermons, attend meditation retreats and release a fish or bird as per the customs.
