Episode of Series “Our Asian Neighbours: Thailand”.
In Chiang Mai, Thailand’s northern capital, many traditions and crafts have remained unchanged for hundreds of years. This film looks at the native handicrafts, including the production of silver jewellery, lacquerware utensils and silk-weaving. We take part in a colourful festival which marks the end of the Buddhist Lent. Through the day and into the night we see the solemn religious ceremonies, and the carefree carnival, complete with fireworks
