Okay, I am back with some more photos from the striking 2015 Discover Thainess campaign launch that happened in Mumbai.
In my last post I had promised about more photos of mouth-watering Thai delicacies, and so here I am!
Also there are some photos of the brilliant display of Muay Thai and the very intricate Khon Mask painting
– these vibrant mask are used in Thai dance dramas.
|Thai friiters – they come in many varieties, and are so delicious, you will never bored of them!
And if you are a vegetarian, they can save you from boring broccoli soups!
|Fruity candies (preserves), attractive to look at, and tasty to eat!
|Coconut shavings. The inviting colours!|
I couldn’t help but ‘sample’ numerous glasses of fresh juice served by this beautiful and gracious ladyboy!
There were varieties that we don’t find locally, so it was fun to sample them all one after the other
and keep coming back for more.

And from these attractive and delectable treats, lets move to photos that depict the Thai culture and traditions,
so here’s some more of ‘Thainess’ for you, starting from Khon masks.
Khon, a tradition Thai dance drama is performed by men wearing masks, and Khon masks are all hand crafted.

And from Khon masks, let’s move the very popular Muay Thai! Muay Thai is a tradition martial arts of Thailand,
and at the launch the artists showcasing a Muay Thai bout kept everyone hooked with their performance.
