Buddhists carry candles as they circle around Wat Benjamabophit on Makha Bucha Day in Bangkok
Buddhists carry candles as they circle around Wat Benjamabophit on Makha Bucha Day in Bangkok February 25, 2013. Makha Bucha Day honors Buddha and his teachings and falls on the full moon day of the third lunar month. Bangkok, home to over 9 million people, is both one of the most popular tourist destinations in Southeast Asia and the capital of a country with one of Asia's widest rich-poor disparities. The chaotic and vibrant city is a mishmash of dizzying skyscrapers and colossal shopping malls jammed up against residential apartment buildings and homes. Crowded streets bustle with sidewalk vendors and motorbikes, and 7.5 million registered cars overwhelm roads designed for just 1.4 million. Picture taken February 25, 2013.
