Charoen Chai Moon Festival 2019

oin us for a photogenic walking tour to the unique Charoen Chai community. The Community which sits next to the MRT Station Wat Mangkon, celebrates the Chinese Moon Festival which has been described by the locals as the Thanks Giving of the Chinese. It’s the last community in Bangkok that celebrates this ancient Chinese Festival in such copious manner.

Unfortunately we don’t know whether September 13th is going to be the last time this festival is being held as the community is threatened with eviction to make way for development.

As such we would like to raise awareness and celebrate the beauty of our diverse cultural heritage by organizing a photography walk in the afternoon which will end at the community festival.
