Candle Festival✨ in UbonRatchathani province, one of the most charming festivals in Thailand, is being held to celebrate the Buddhist Lent and mark the beginning of the rainy season.
At the festival, many candle carving artists from Thailand and the neighboring countries have come to Tung Sri Muang on the last week of July to show off their candle masterpieces and enjoy food, drinks and the amazingly beautiful candles.👩🏻🎨👩🏻🎨👩🏻🎨

🕯If you got some time and want to submerge yourself with the local culture, you should definitely visit local temples in UbonRatchathani province like I did. At the local temples you are more than welcome to take part in the candle carving process, which the pieces you made will actually be used as the decoration in the candle parade.
The 3 temples I visited were:
🌟Burapa Temple (https://goo.gl/maps/qhK4uhFu5vm),
🌟PaYai Temple (https://goo.gl/maps/HCSj6WVfzMs)
🌟and Sri PraDu Temple (https://goo.gl/maps/KrDkbVUdWXD2)
It was super fun and free of charge, and the local people even gave me local homemade food.💸
