Say Hello To A Monk: Monks On The BTS

BANGKOK – BTS Sky Train co-operated with the Bangkok City Council to host the first Sky-Tak-Baat — the religious act of offering food to monks on a sky train — by inviting thousands of monks onto the BTS.

Well, if not religious, at least innovative.

The monks were invited from 20 eminent temples in Bangkok. The organizer claimed the event was the first time people got to see, not one, but a thousand monks riding the sky train. People brought food onto the train and the Tak-Baat process began while the trains travelled across Bangkok City.
