Faith and fun combined as Chaimongkol Temple hosted its annual pre-Songkran fair.

Leaders of the Soi Khopai Community were among those making merit on the fourth night of the April 1-9 festival at the South Pattaya royal wat. They brought flowers, incense and candles to make offerings to the monks.

The fair was a mix of merit-making and holiday-making, with food and game booths mixed among opportunities to offer robes to monks, refill oil lamps and lie down in a coffin to dispel bad luck.

The temple fair continues nightly on South Road.

Youngsters are indoctrinated into Buddhism on the memorable rides.
