Shan New Year Celebrations in Thailand

Shan New Year Celebrations in Thailand

The Shan community living in Thailand celebrated its new year from Nov. 21-23 in Chiang Mai. Many Shan have fled their homeland in Burma to seek safety and security in Thailand following the 2021 military coup. Hundreds of people, both Shan and non-Shan, took part in new year festivities but kept their loved ones, back home, in Shan State on their minds.
