Songkran Day 2 – Making Merit

One of the positives of the Songkran holidays is that the roads in Bangkok are free of traffic jams because most people leave the city to visit family in rural areas. I am certainly not complaining, but as it’s a holiday, I’m also taking the day off as the designated chauffeur!

We first make our way out to Wat Wat Sisrathong where Chanya and the others make their ritual blessings. We then head off to Wat Rai Khing where we grab some lunch and watch some longboat races which was quite unexpected. Once all the market wandering was finished, we head back home to prepare for the evening entertainment (which will be in the next video)

We were on our way home from the Chim Shop Chai shopping trip and noticed another village estate holding offering new houses at a reasonable price so we dropped in to take a look.

It is a common sight around Thailand to see local temples hold large fêtes and this week it is time for our local Wat to hold theirs.

Chanya found a new housing estate close to where we live so we take a short drive out there to check it out.
