The festival that opens the Buddhist Lent period when monks stay at their monasteries to pray, study and meditate, is picturesque and astonishing. Not only it features numerous parades showcasting the traditional beauty of Thai clothes, dances and song, but also huge floats of sculptures lit by candles. The sculptures show different aspects of religious life, while also often including "burning" long boats, that are highlights of traditional Thai festival. Moreover, this is the last day for a good party before the solemn full of prayer three months period will start.
