Night Festival in Phitsanulok

After a five hour train journey with arctic air conditioning, what could be more refreshing than a night festival. The beers were the cheapest we found since leaving the UK. The bottles even came with straws!

The selection of food was very diverse, from chicken and seafood to fried worms, maggots and crickets. We had a great time sampling lots of things but weren't brave enough to eat the insects.

The riverside was beautifully lit with all kinds of things - lotus flowers, Hello Kitties, stars, polar bears, penguins, dinosaurs, elephants and lions to name but a few.
