A city park was transformed into a Bangkok bonanza as the Magic of Thailand Festival rolled into Eaton Park.
Thousands of people flocked to the Norwich park over the weekend to enjoy the vast and varied offering of the travelling festival.
The event saw all aspects of the Asian country showcased, from its unmistakable food and drinks offerings to martial arts and even ladyboys.
Organiser Jackie Winitkun said: "It's been amazing. We love bringing Thailand to Norwich and had such a very warm welcome.
"I think people really enjoy what we bring here - the Thai culture, Thai food and Thai smiles."
There was a whole array of activities for the whole family, including traditional wooden toy-making workshops and fairground rides.
And a highlight also saw visitors challenged to try weird and wonderful foods in the ever-popular 'I'm British, Get Me Out of Here' eating competition.
