Wat Plai Laem Temple party 11-20 February 2012

Wat Plai Laem Temple party 11-20 February 2012

If you live in Plai Laem, near the local Temple or Wat, you may have to get used to some noise during the night, since the Wat Plai Laem Temple party is on between 11th and 20th February.

These Temple fairs usually have a band or singer on stage each night and this years' big star is Kotee Aramboy, a 'superstar' famous from TV shows and big screen movies in Thailand. He seems to be have been around since I just arrived in Thailand, back in 1999, when he was very young to the scene
Besides music and entertainment, there will be the usual food and clothes and who knows what sales tents around the Temple premises. More pictures and posts will follow in due time.

The main stage is being erected

Preparations for the fair are in full swing and the main stage is being erected in front of the main building. The music is already blaring at fairly decent noise levels, always an interesting observation how most Thai people think absolutely nothing about hard to very hard noise levels.
The term 'noise pollution' still has to be invented here.

It's well worth visiting the Temple grounds at least one day or night during the fair, enjoy some of the (junk) food on display and in general just enjoy the hustle and bustle of day at the temple fair.
