Thailand sure is an extraordinary place to visit, especially for the culture and history buffs. Travellers planning on visiting Thailand will have an even better experience if they are able to make it on special festive days. Koh Samui resorts too may have experiences worth trying out during festive days. The Makha Bucha Day is just one of the important local festivals that take place here.

This celebration usually occurs on a full moon day and is a significant day on the Buddhist calendar. The day signifies 2 events that took place in different time periods; the gathering of 1250 monks before their ordainment by Buddha and the last sermon given by Buddha a few days before his death. The day is normally marked on the 3rd month of the lunar calendar. Observe the devotees on their religious journey on this day while enjoying a stay at hotels like Anantara Bophut Koh Samui Resort if you happen to be in Thailand at this time of year.
