Thai families join in spooky Halloween festivities at 'haunted village'

Families joined in Halloween festivities in Bangkok, Thailand, on October 30. Children wore costumes and walked around a 'haunted village' which was set up inside an exhibition centre in the capital. Local drama students wandered around in terrifying costumes including zombie Thai female dancers, haunted nuns, witches and possessed asylum patients. A ghost Buddhist monk and 'fallen angel' were some of the traditional Asian figures giving a special Halloween twist. Despite being an American festival, Halloween has also become a regular event in Thailand with many locals taking the opportunity to dress up.
