Description

Loy Krathong is a culturally significant and enchanting festival celebrated in Bangkok, Thailand, typically in November. On the night of the full moon in the 12th month of the Thai lunar calendar, people come together along the banks of rivers and canals to launch krathongs, intricately crafted floating baskets made of banana leaves adorned with flowers, candles, and incense. This ritual is a way to pay respects to the Goddess of Water, Phra Mae Khongkha, and to let go of troubles and make wishes for the future. The river becomes aglow with the soft, flickering light of countless candles on the water, creating a serene and magical ambiance. Loy Krathong also features traditional Thai music, dance, and delicious food, making it a festival that beautifully showcases the nation's rich cultural heritage and fosters unity and gratitude among its people.
