Halloween 2010 in the Land of Smiles

Halloween in Pattaya 2010 - 1

Thai’s love sanook ( fun ) and nothing provides more sanook than a good holiday, even if it’s a borrowed one. Halloween fits the bill amazingly well and in certain areas of Thailand like Pattaya it is celebrated just as well as in the West. While you won’t find children going door to door looking for tasty treats you will find a great party atmosphere where dressing up is all part of the nights fun for adults and kids alike.

In the past Pattaya has gone all out for Halloween with parties and concerts at Bali Hai Pier as well as costume contests but this year seemed rather subdued with little fan fare to mark the day. The Hard Rock Cafe had two nights of parties but the final night on Halloween didn’t seem to be too festive, the bar was full but the party atmosphere didn’t seem there. Just across the street from the Hard Rock the city of Pattaya put on a small costume contest with live music that was fun for a little bit.

The real fun though usually happens on Walking street with falang and Thai’s alike dressing up and having a great time.

I spent the night walking around town from the Hard Rock Cafe all the way up to Walking Street and found more than a few people in the Halloween spirit as you can see below.

    1. My sister lived in Thailand for a few years and visited Chang Mai and said it is a lovely place. She brought me some very beautiful silks home when she came back to the uk … it is very interesting to find out how it is made, thank you

    2. Enjoyed your post Talen. Just wanted to add that if you decide to hand wash your Thai silk (never, ever machine wash)then firstly lightly brush over the fabric to remove any dirt particles. Then do a sample test with a small, normally unseen part of the fabric. Use cool water and a cotton ball and if there are any signs of the dye bleeding onto the cotton ball take your fabric to a dry cleaner for washing. Finally, if their are no dye stains on the sample fabric test cotton ball, go ahead with your very gently hand washing but add a few drops of baby oil during washing to preserve the luster and to make ironing easier
