In Thailand, the looming Thai New Year season edges closer and could more or less call for new changes, too. Spring cleaning is no fun, but revamps may have you feeling otherwise. With new plants shooting up and well wishes blessed by the elders, this season symbolises a new start that we can physically materialise by giving a new look to our surroundings.
