Orange Clove – EnTHAIing moments
At the entrance, we were greeted by the ladies dressed in the traditional Thai Chut Thai phra ratcha niyom, literally Thai dress of royal endorsement. Followed a traditional hand-washing ceremony, where people pour scented water filled with flowers on the hands as a sign of respect to the elders and offer them a blessing for the year. An important part of the big New Year Day celebrations in Thailand, The Songkran water festival or Thai New Year takes place from April 13 to 15, every year many people travel to Thailand to experience the traditional Thai New Year which boasts everything from water fights to spectacular processions.
