Bangkok Prepares for Chinese New Year

As Chinese New Year quickly approaches, Bangkok is showing her ties to China and making preparations for Chinese New Year, which is the coming Sunday, February 14, 2010. The Chinese Tiger show is one of my favorite things to see during Chinese New Year. There are competitions between teams all over Bangkok. The Tiger show is quite interesting. Two people are dressed in the Tiger suite and they perform acrobatics on a series of poles and differing heights, ranging from only several feet to over 10 feet. The video is of a team trying to raise support walking through the streets of Bangkok that I encountered while walking to work.
