Rice-fields predominate the landscape of Chainat Province where rice is a major commercial crop grown. Hay, a by-product of rice cultivation, is available in great abundance. This has led to an initiative by the villagers to creatively transform this agricultural by-product into a craft and an economic asset.
Hay from the fields is used to make bird-shaped hay stacks known as the “Hoon Fang”. Colourful, in various shapes and forms and true to life, these hay structures, the key attraction of the Chainat Hoon Fang Straw Bird Fair are so extraordinary, they have become the province’s most popular attraction. To produce a top quality, intricate piece of handicraft from the hay, the farmers also grade the hay which is then crafted into miniature straw birds. The miniature straw birds have become a popular item among tourists as a souvenir of their visit to Chainat.
The Chainat Straw-Bird Festival features a variety of activities such as Straw-Bird Contests, “Young Talent” Contests, village handicraft competitions, a Light-And-Sound show, special performances, sales of products under the “One Village. One Product” theme, and exhibits by the state sector.
The Chainat Bird Park on Phaholyothin Road offers an added attraction. The park which stretches over an area of 300 rai houses a 26 rai bird enclosure, the biggest of its kind in Asia. Over 200 species co-habit within this space. There are also a further 63 other individual bird enclosures of varying sizes to house predatory birds and the smaller birds.

Saint Valentine’s Day, commonly known as Valentine’s Day, or the Feast of Saint Valentine, is observed on February 14 each year. It is celebrated in many countries around the world, although it remains a working day in most of them.
St. Valentine’s Day began as a liturgical celebration of one or more early Christian saints named Valentinus. The most popular martyrology associated with Saint Valentine was that he was imprisoned for performing weddings for soldiers who were forbidden to marry and for ministering to Christians, who were persecuted under the Roman Empire; during his imprisonment, he is said to have healed the daughter of his jailer Asterius. Legend states that before his execution he wrote “from your Valentine” as a farewell to her. Today, Saint Valentine’s Day is an official feast day in the Anglican Communion, as well as in the Lutheran Church. The Eastern Orthodox Church also celebrates Saint Valentine’s Day, albeit on July 6th and July 30th, the former date in honor of the Roman presbyter Saint Valentine, and the latter date in honor of Hieromartyr Valentine, the Bishop of Interamna (modern Terni).
The day was first associated with romantic love in the circle of Geoffrey Chaucer in the High Middle Ages, when the tradition of courtly love flourished. By the 15th century, it had evolved into an occasion in which lovers expressed their love for each other by presenting flowers, offering confectionery, and sending greeting cards (known as “valentines”). Valentine’s Day symbols that are used today include the heart-shaped outline, doves, and the figure of the winged Cupid. Since the 19th century, handwritten valentines have given way to mass-produced greeting cards.
