Trip to Chanthaburi for the Christmas celebrations

When many tourists talk about Thailand they mention the Buddhist temples and monks as being among the highlights. But what many of them don’t realize is that there are also Thai Christians in the country with a number of large and beautiful churches and cathedrals. Not everyone in Thailand is a Buddhist. There are small communities scattered around the country, many of Vietnamese descent. One of these communities can be found in Chanthaburi around the Cathedral of Immaculate Conception. I visited this city at the weekend to take part in their annual celebrations for Christmas. The following are the photos that I tweeted live during the trip.

    Thats great, but if I wanted to see Churches and that stuff I could just stayed at back home and forget about another great Asian Culture, why would anyone really want to see a foreign Church in Thailand, does anyone visit A Buddhist Temple back in the USA to see their culture, its just about spreading a foreign culture down others throats.
