February to April
Kite Flying season

Following old tradition Thai people play kites during these months of the northeast monsoon throughout the country. Not only for pleasure but also for sportive competitions. Big and colorful paper kites are played and fight 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 kites and bring them back into male territory.
These kite flying competitions can be watched in the afternoons on Sanam Luang, a large square near Wat Phra Keo/Grand Palace in Bangkok.
