Where To Celebrate Day Of The Dead In Bangkok
The Day of the Dead, typically associated with October 31-November 2 in modern times, is celebrated in colourful fanfare with vibrant makeup, costumes, parades, parties and music, as a means of making offerings to lost loved ones. Having originated in Mexico a thousand years ago, it's amazing how the tradition of Dia de los Muertos has spread all over the world—even to Bangkok.
