A tradition remembered
 
Wat Baantab in Chiang Mai’s Mae Chaem district will hold a Chula Krathin ceremony to close out the three-month Buddhism retreat. This unique ceremony will be celebrated on November 14-15 in traditional Lanna style with residents gathering the cotton from the field and spinning it into a yarn before weaving a yellow robe. The yellow robe of Chula Krathin must be completed in one day. The locals will celebrate the yellow robe with a long and beautiful procession through the rice paddies before offering |it to the monk. 
 
Messing about on the river
X2 River Kwai gears up for the winter holidays with the brand-new XFloat Cabin. Boasting a contemporary design, the cabins are ideal for couples and travellers, providing the chance to awaken from a water-lulled sleep and greet the morning on the surface of the restful River Kwai, surrounded by spectacular riverside scenery. There is also an upper “moon deck” to catch the refreshing daytime breeze, or to lie back and gaze at the stars at night. Visit www.X2Lobby.com.
