Wat Thai - Songkran Festival - Perceptor's Report

This is the 2nd year that I went to Wat Thai during Songkran Festival.
We had a fantastic time. Tons of good food and lot of people there.

Enjoy my photo coverage:

  1. Wonderful as always, Perceptor. Thanks! Are the stalls from actual restaurants? Also, did you have the curry puffs and are they good? Thanks again!

      i might be wrong but i dont think they are from actual restaurants... no curry puffs for me this time

        The aren't from actual restaurants. Some of the stall operators rotate every weekend. The papaya salad lady Kunya had a stall there yesterday called Kunya Foods. Weekend of the Songkran Festival in Hollywood she had a booth there and one at Wat Thai.

        Proud to say I'm the photographer of those food photo's on her booth's. (2nd, 3rd & 4th photo's the OP displayed...they're the same photo's for the same two booths).

        I had a curry puff yesterday and surprised it looked like an empanada, it was just ok.
        Talk about busy...we got there at 10am and had to park 4 blocks away and it was packed. Interesting to watch to offerings at the tables people made to the monks.

      2. Beautiful as always! This year seemed much better than the last! I can't wait to take P. for his first time! :)


        1. Looks great! Thanks for posting. Question, would you say there were a lot more food options than normal weekends? We have gone before and I wondered if it was worth fighting the crowds to get something especial as apposed to going on a none Festival weekend. Pics look great though :-)
