Chinese New Year
The water snake is replacing the Water Dragon
Like every year in Cha-am, the Chinese New Year 2013 was again celebrated vigorously. Tens of Thousands were coming from Bangkok with their cars and the colorful tour buses to the beach of Cha-Am. Some smart of them already arrived yesterday, on February 9th, and began to celebrate. Today at the Chinese New Year once again all roads and hotels are crowded. The hotel prices are on these days sometimes three times as high as usual. At the same time also the Cha-Am Prawn Festival 2013 take place, which continues to February 17th.
The Narathip Road, which is also named pork street, because of the many pig restaurants, was once again blocked at the lower end to the viewpoint. There are now back several souvenir stalls and delicious food stalls.
In the Chinese calendar now the water dragon was replaced by the water snake, which turns on 31 January 2014 to the wooden horse.
