DirectRooms.com Ė Tourists from All Around Head to Krabi for Buddha Birthday Celebration
Released on: April 18, 2011, 8:20 am
Tourists and travellers from throughout Thailand and around
the globe will be heading for the popular beach destination this May to
celebrate Shree Buddha’s birthday. With the extra influx of people
heading into the town, online hotel website DirectRooms.com advises
early booking to secure good value accommodation.
The Shree Buddha birthday celebration is a chance for non-Buddhists to participate
in a holy Buddhist festival, since Buddhism is a faith which happily permits
non-followers to observe and enjoy festivals. Many Thais like to head south to
Krabi’s beautiful resorts to enjoy the festival somewhere other than their local,
usual temple of worship.
Like many Buddhist festivals, the Shree Buddha birthday event will see street
parades and processions decked out with flowers, with Buddhist followers handing
alms to monks who lead the parades.
Buddhist festivals and celebrations typically mean a day off work for all native
Thais, so many people head away to make a short family holiday of any particular
religious event. With that in mind, DirectRooms.com advises that the hotels in Krabi and local guesthouses could be busier than normal as people head into town
in large numbers.
Lek Boonlert, marketing head at DirectRooms.com, said: “Buddhism is a very inclusive
religion and invites many tourists and travelers to view and participate in its
festivals, meaning increased numbers in popular destinations like Krabi. So to be
sure of getting hold of a good value place to stay, be smart and book online before
