Chinese New Year is celebrated to some extent in various locations throughout Thailand. Although the best-known events take place in Bangkok and Nakhon Sawan, there are numerous towns and cities which hold some form of celebration for the Chinese Lunar New Year. I took these photos yesterday during the festivities in Chiang Mai’s Chinatown area (centred around Warorot Market). It was a colourful and enjoyable scene with many of those attending wearing red as they watched the parade and traditional lion and dragon dances wind their way through the streets.
