Before travelling to Thailand I was visiting some blogs and reading about the different sites to visit.
One thing that stood out to me were the pictures of monks in their colorful orange and yellow robes…
They looked so beautiful and vibrant. Everywhere I went in Chiang Mai I saw those colorful robes. There were monks walking everywhere, doing their errands and just walking along the streets.
Of course, the majority of monks walked across temple grounds – which made for lovely, colorful pictures.
But we also saw quite a few during the evening celebrations of the Lantern Festival. They stood next to the decorated temples and watched the parades and lanterns.
And of course, today’s monks are modern and technology-savy too, so they had their cameras with them to also take pictures of the celebrations.
