Expect loud fireworks: Chinese New Year's Eve
February 11 is Chinese New Year's Eve and February 12 is Chinese New Year's Day. The following is from a TAT press release: Between February 12-13, 2002, Yaowarat road, known as the Chinatown of Bangkok, will come alive with the biggest Chinese New Year festival ever held as part of efforts to promote Chinese-Thai culture and boost tourism. The Chinatown Yaowarat 2002 Festival will be held along the one-kilometre stretch of road from Odeon Roundabout (adjacent to the Wat Trimit or "Golden Buddha Temple") to Ratchawongse Intersection between 18:00-24:00 hours on both days.
