Special thanks to the details received upon hostel booking confirmation & prompt useful reply to her queries about walking direction from the airport by the hostel staffJust a 🔟mins walking 🚶🏻‍♀️🚶🏻‍♂️ distance (approximately 700m) from the airport ✈️🛫🛬

Ohh…It’s also nearby the Bangkok train 🚂🛤 station, right opposite the airport ✈️🛫🛬 with a connecting bridge 🌉

She has a late arrival 🛬 to Bangkok 🇹🇭 & she needed to check-in for a connecting flight 🛫 the next day to Nakhon Phanom province from the same airport ✈️

Initially she had a thought of having an overnight 😴💤 at the airport ✈️🛫🛬 (not her 1️⃣st time as a travel lover ❤️). Then, she got this recommendation from 🌐 Booking.com, it’s within short walking 🚶🏻‍♀️🚶🏻‍♂️ distance & cheap ☺️ So, why not❓⁉️✅Moreover, no ❌ credit card 💳 details required for booking & free 🆓 cancellation with an informed dateline 🗓🕛 upon your booking confirmation✅ Awesome‼️😀

Yeah!! She 👩🏻 is blessed to enjoy the ‘Pestle/ Stick Dance” aka “Saek-Ten-Saak “ performed by the Tai Saek ethnic group. It’s performed annually on the Tai Saek village ancestor worship day i.e. on the 2⃣nd day of waxing moon of the 3️⃣rd lunar month to please the spirit. She was told that if this dance requires to be performed for other timing/ period, the village spiritual leader will have to ask for permission by offering a pig’s head, 2⃣️0️⃣️️-Thai baht cash 💰 & liquor 🥃, then pick up a predictive coloured stick. If the village spiritual leader has picked up a stick of the same colour, it means the spirit does not 🈲 allow for the request

The dancers will perform to the fast rhythm of drums & striking pestles painted in both red & white colours 😃😁
