Bangkok Boo!

Considering how many Thais have lived and traveled abroad, and taking into account how much the Western world has influenced Thai culture, it's not surprising that Halloween has begun to catch on here. More and more Thais are dressing up in costume for the occasion, Halloween parties are becoming more common here, it's getting easier to find trick-or-treat candy in the stores in Bangkok, and it's not unusual to see decorations with witches, pumpkins, ghosts, and goblins in certain businesses these days. Even some Bangkok taxi drivers are getting into the spirit, like this cabbie whose ghost face stares hauntingly at passengers in the backseat of his cab.
