Ubon Ratchathani Candles Festival has come and gone. The memories of the past few days will remain a lifetime. I offer just some of the images I had the pleasure of experiencing during the festival.

    Very impressiv pictures documenting a other different cultur. I love your blog!
    I’m an expat from Switzerland, living in Key West, FL. It was also for me a culture shock in the begin, now after 6 years I’m getting used to this American Way of Life.:-))and Key West is NOT America!….smile..

  2. Thanks for the comments and the nice words. I believe Key West would have a caribean or Cuban flavor.

    Actually there is no typical American culture. It is many sub-cultures mixed together which makes live interesting.

  3. Hi, love the website and has inspired me to think about a visit. Do you have dates for this years 2012 candle festival, as would be nice to see that at the same time (-:

  4. The Candle Festival is organized and scheduled around the full moon in July. If you want to enjoy the activities leading up to the parade on the full moon then I would recommend a week prior. If you are coming you should try to get a room reservation now, as that is one time of the year most of the accommodations are fully booked. I am out and about so I don’t have a calendar with the moon phases.
