Jao Por Tap Festival is a celebration by the Chinese people of Samrong in Samut Prakan Province, who believe that their God, Jao Por Tap will help them get rich. Behind Imperial World, on the old Paknam Railway Road, they have built a large Chinese shrine dedicated to this God. Every year during January, they hold a parade through town which is attended by literally thousands of local people.
