Thailand prepares to celebrate Asanha Bucha Day on July 11

Provinces across the country are preparing to organize religious activities in early July to commemorate the Asanha Bucha Day, which falls on July 11 this year.

In certain areas close to Bangkok, candle processions, mass alms-making ceremonies, and dharma talks will be held at Nakhon Pathom’s Buddha Monton area. Members of the royal family are set to represent Their Majesties the King and Queen at the event.

Elsewhere in the Northeastern region, the Candle Festival in Ubon Ratchathani is considered the province’s biggest religious celebration. The highlight of the festival is an elaborate Candle Parade held towards the end of the Lent period, which features a procession of ornately-carved beeswax candles of various shapes and sizes.
