一-Something about Thailand
Bangkok is the capital of Thailand, it is very different from Guangzhou. There are many temples in Bangkok. It is hot all year round, so there are a lot of fruits, the most famous fruit is durian. There are many rivers in the city, so the ―market on the water‖ is very famous, you can buy flowers, vegetables, fruits and other things on the boats.

Festival. It is the beginning of their New Year. Before the festival, people clean their house and cook nice food. During the festival, people sing, dance and throw water on each other. They think that water can clean away bad things and bring good luck. How interesting it is!
