Chak Phra Festival | Pulling the Buddha | Surat Thani

Surat Thani | Oct 11-19th | Today we took a last minute trip (flight) to visit the Chak Phra Festival in Surat Thani.  Also known as the “Pulling the Buddha” festival, the Chak Phra Festival in Surat Thani (and throughout Thailand) celebrates the return of the Buddha from heaven and signifies the official end of the Buddhist three month rain retreat (usually in October).
