Sawasdee Krab,

There’s more to Thailand than satay, elephants, Buddhism and rice. All the flavours, arts, culture and exotic atmosphere of Thailand will be on show at Darling Harbour on 9 and 10 March for the Thailand Grand Festival 2013. And you can even win flights to Thailand.

Darling Harbour is home to a large number of cultural festivals and none is more colourful and lively than the Thailand Grand Festival. This is the festival’s fourth year and it continues to go from strength to strength. More than 60,000 people are expected to attend thailand-grand-festival2across the two days of the festival, so if you don’t like crowds this probably isn’t the place for you. But if you enjoy happy, festive, cultural events then come along to the party. Songkran, a traditional water festival, is this year’s theme, which seems very topical given our recent weather.

Sydney Seasons, Steak House & Restaurant Surin

Sydney Seasons, Steak House & Restaurant Surin

The write up is good, but it does not say how good this place really is. The décor is typically Thai, however the food is not and the beer and other drinks are icy cold. Very good Thai food is available, so is pasta, their specialty is steak. I have dined there many times and I know that it is the best steak in Thailand.  The cook trained in cooking college in Sydney so he knows what westerners like. So if you are in Surin do not miss this place.

Open days
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday
From 12 noon till late.
For lunch and dinner.

were traditionally excellent at capturing elephants in Cambodia, then training them as working animals. Civil war in Cambodia and the elephant’s decreasing economic importance has forced the elephant handlers (mahouts) to turn to entertainment to make a living.


The event consists of a series of shows displaying the strength and skill of the animals, such as football games and tugs of war. Elephant Round Up and Elephant breakfast

The Elephant Breakfast is a small part of the festival and is held on the Friday morning. A procession of up to over 280 elephants (2012) start marching through Surin city from the railway station area toward the Elephant roundabout at the south end of the city on the Prasat road.

The elephants carry dignitaries and also some tourists who dismount their steeds on arrival. Some elephants carry mahouts in authentic battle outfits from the Thai – Khmer – Laos battles. Intermingled with the elephant procession are local school children and teachers in traditional dress, dancing and playing music.First Birthday Supplies at BirthdayinaBox.com

Once all the elephants have arrived then the banquet can begin, the tables of fruits are quickly cleared by the large team of elephants. Whatever leftovers there may be is not lost, as the local people take the leftovers to their own homes. Continue reading
