Chinese New Year Parade

Chinese New Year parade in Chiang Mai. The Thais celebrate western New Year and Thai New Year (Songkran) too, in April. The western New Year holiday time is the most dangerous time to be on the roads – usually 1000 people are killed in accidents each year over that week. Traffic police finish their work at sunset, so anarchy rules at night.
