Celebrating the New Year in Bangkok

By Bangkok Expert: Natt, Thailand, December 2011

No reviews, be the first!

After all the flood problems of previous months around Bangkok, the Thai people prefer to leave the bad memory behind and look forward to the New Year with a smile. The Bangkok Countdown Ha Ha Ha 2012 is so named because on the Buddhist calendar, next year will be 2555 and 5 is pronounced in Thai as Ha (as in noise you make when you laugh), so this should give you the feel for the expected mood of 2012.
