Every year, many people in Thailand with Chinese ancestors, celebrate the Chinese New Year with elaborate ceremonies. The Chinese New Year is celebrated on a grand scale in Bangkok at Chinatown on Yaowarat Road and in Nakhon Sawan Province. The two boast magnificent dragon processions and lion dances which have become the symbols of the festival.

The atmosphere is arousing with the sound of gongs, cymbals and drums played throughout the fair. The noise of firecrackers, too, echoed everywhere. Looking around, all you see is red and gold colours. In front of you, a group of people in red costume is performing a show looking somewhat like acrobatics.
