As December and January are the months for the New Year Celebration, many events or festivals are held all over Thailand each year. This “Lantern Festival” in Nakhon Sawan province is one among them.

The place that the “Lantern Festival” is normally held is called “Paradise Park”.

Yeah! You will feel as if you are in paradise, especially when many trees in the park were decorated with gorgeous lights beautifully like these.

Very wonderful, right?

Apart from the beauty of the lantern sculptures, you can also learn the lifestyle of Thai-Chinese people, who live in this province in a very large quantity, through these lanterns sculptures.

Below is the photo of lantern sculpture of Chinese people who migrated from China to Nakhon Sawan by boats more than a hundred year ago.

Dragon or Mangkorn (in Thai) is a sacred animal according to Thai-Chinese people’s beliefs, so the lantern sculpture of dragon is the most important one and it’s decorated beautifully.

For me, all of these lantern sculptures are very amazing. Do you agree with me?

If you visit Thailand during December and January, you must not miss this "Lantern Festival".

p.s. These photos are from my brother.

Beautiful lights and sculptures, and very colorful too! This is similar to the Festival of Lights that many cities here in the U.S. have during Christmas where you can walk through and others have places where you can drive through. I have never been to one here because they are so far away from where I live but I have seen them on the television.

Oh! It's good to know that this is similar to the Festival of Lights that you have in U.S. during Christmas. Many thanks for your nice comment and for sharing your experience with me. ;)

Always a pleasure sis! Hugs!

Wow! The whole place looks like a cartoon town! Children should like these colourful cartoons a lot!

Yeah! I absolutely agree with you. Not only children, I myself also love these so much.... ;D

Many thanks for your nice comment. ;)
