Thousands gather at Doi Inthanon to usher in New Year

In addition to having fun, tourists can also opt to make a devout start to 2018 with prayers from late Sunday night till the early hours of Monday. An alms-giving ceremony will be held at the park on Monday morning too. 

Nearly 12,500 tourists were already in the park on Saturday. 

The minimum temperature at the mountain park is about 17 degrees Celsius. 

The head of the park, Rung Hirunwong, said tourists had been advised to park their vehicles in front of the park and take public transport.

“This will ease traffic congestion and ensure road safety, as local drivers are familiar with the routes here,” he said.
