The official days of the That Luang (Taht Lou-ahng) Festival are two days before, the day before and the day of the full moon in November. This year it falls on the 26th, 27th and 28th. For the past two weeks, though, there have been festivities in the huge parking lot outside of That Luang.
The Ferris Wheel was definitely my favorite part this year. It was good to feel a bit removed from all of the insanity happening below and be able to observe it all from the air.
