Kite Flying season

Following old traditions, Thai people play kites during these months of the northeast monsoon throughout the country. Not only for pleasure but also for sports competitions. Large and colorful paper kites are played and fought against each other. They symbolize the battle of the sexes, in which opposing teams fly male (chula) and female (pakpao) kites. The small agile pakpao with a long tail tries to bring down the more cumbersome chula (about 2 meters), while the male kite seeks to snare the female kite and bring it back into male territory.
