Last Light of 2013. The Setting Sun on New Year’s Eve, north Thailand


I’m sure most of us feel a connection to the imminent passing of the year symbolised by the setting sun on New Year’s Eve – the resolve to do things better, travel to new places, live a simpler life maybe.

In Thailand, the traditional Thai New Year is known as Songkran* (which falls on April 13 or April 14 – see blog links at bottom) but across the country Thais also celebrate the arrival of the Gregorian New Year.

Below are some images of the setting sun, taken on December 31st 2013 on a recent road trip to the north of Thailand.
