Bangkok Celebrates Chinese New Year - Year of the Goat

Princess Sirindhorn attended the opening ceremony of Chinese New Year celebrations at Bangkok's Chinatown this evening. To bring in the Year of the Goat, Bangkok extended the main celebrations from the Chinatown Gate for several blocks along Yaowarat Road and it was packed with thousands of people enjoying the festivities. The festivities included cultural performances from China, dragon parades and lion dances, street stalls selling Chinese food, lantern decorations, and an exhibition telling the story of Yaowarat’s Thai-Chinese community.
