Poi Luang Festivals
These are North Thailand Temple fundraising festivals, usually held within the temple grounds. They tend to have traditional and modern dancing, stalls, Thai Boxing, films, eating and lots of drinking!
Each village temple holds one of these festivals, and gains merit from it's neighbours attendance, so there is one locally every weekend for over a month. We will arrange transport after dinner to these events. Chiang Dao Cave Poi Luang is probably the biggest and most impressive of these.
