I was temple hopping in Chiang Mai the last time I wrote about my epic Thailand adventure, but the best thing about my stay in Chiang Mai was it was Makha Bucha Day.
Makha Bucha Day is the second most important buddhist holiday in Thailand. It is the day on which Buddhist honour Buddha and his teachings. One of the ways that Buddhists celebrate is to attend a candle light procession around their temple.
Makha Bucha Day fell on a Saturday, which is the day on which Chiang Mai has its weekly night markets. One of the largest takes place right outside my hostel on Wualai Road. Which also happened to be the route you took to get to a good number of the Temples and I found myself on a journey through the Night market, with stops at temples, where I would stop to participate in the Makha Bucha celebration. Quite an experience!
