Many countries ring in the New Year with spectacular fireworks displays. 2012 started with a bang in Thailand.
What could be more festive and relaxing than enjoying fireworks being rocketing above you while you sit on a peaceful beach in Thailand drinking a spiked Thai iced tea? What could be more horrifying than those fireworks bombarding the beach you're sitting on like it was Normandy on June 6, 1944? Luckily nobody was seriously injured during this fireworks fail on Hua Hin Beach in Thailand.
