Happy Holidays everyone! Xmas celebrations and Happy New year celebrations this week!
Thailand is a mostly Buddhist Country with only a minority percentage of people being Christian and so Christmas is not an officially celebrated holiday here. However as we all know, you don’t have to be strictly religious to celebrate and enjoy Christmas, a lot of us from Europe and the States will have just grown up with it as being a holiday, family occasion with celebrations and gift exchanging, food, drinks and merriment!
If you find yourself on Koh Phangan at Christmas time you will probably find yourself in either two categories; you have come to escape Christmas anyway so you don’t care or you are feeling a little nostalgic, homesick or just really Love Christmas and would like to do something!
Of course beside of the Xmas celebration parties we have the New Year is coming, get prepared!! Try our New Year Special !!
