The traditional Phanom Rung festival takes place every year at full moon in the 5th lunar month, April.­ There are virtually no tourists there, but it's a very popular event for Thai people.­

It's an amazing event, visually stunning and highly recommended if you travel in Thailand at this period.­

To see more photos and information about this event, go to my Phanom Rung festival photo album.
