This year we will celebrate Loy krathong at Santi Chai Prakan Public Park, near Phra Athit pier, a popular place with Thai people to enjoy festivities. Loy krathong is a famous Thai festival held annually on the full moon of the 12th month of the Thai Lunar calendar. It’s a time-honoured tradition celebrated throughout the entire country and has been celebrated for hundreds of years, passed down from generation to generation. The Loy Krathong festival typically consists of ornately decorated floating rafts (Krathong) illuminated with candles which are then sent down rivers, lakes, canals, the sea or any body of water. The releasing of the Krathongs is known as a symbol of the individual letting their year’s bad luck and misfortune drift away in preparation for a new year of good luck.
