This was something that was new for me when I was strolling through Phuket Market - specifically Ranong Road.
The travelling monk is not something which is new to Thai Buddhism. This particular monk was here to raise money for the building of a temple - as can be seen on the side of the vehicle!
The uptake by the onlookers was very large - it was very simple to approach the monk, receive a blessing.
Not the same as the travelling monk and the private jet that has recently been in the news!
