Around the moat: Chang Puak Gate

  1. It's starting to build up for the annual Loy Krathong / Yee Peng lantern festival...

    and there's a few illuminated floats at Chang Puak gate on the north side of town.

    Check 'em out at night now before the festival starts & you should get some gorgeous colourful photos...

  3. Should be up on 17th & 18th next week. Look forward to seeing them! :happy3:
     
  4. Silly question I guess, being floats, are they going to move around the city during the festival, or stay at Chang Puak Gate. I will be in town for the Saturday and Sunday (20th and 21st) and would love to see them.
     
  5. Looks amazing..

    If all best laid plans of mice and men work out.. and I manage a one go non stop from Phuket (that doesnt sound like much fun) I should be up there in time for a northern LK this year.
     
  6. Good luck. That's one hell of a long boring ride, especially non-stop. What bike will you be riding up?
     
  7. SUAN DOK GATE, the West Gate
    and not as nice as Chang Puak gate, the north gate.

    No thats too much of a bun burner for me.. Esp as a 1 dayer.

    Bike is coming in the shippers truck.. I will be driving.. the 19th (or early hours of 20th likely) I will be CM's newest resident :)
