Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.

One of the grandest cultural festivals in Thailand, Loy Krathong was started out centuries ago as a spiritual festival in which locals would float Krathong (tiny vessel made of folded banana leaves) on riverways to pay respects to Goddess of the River. It eventually evolved into a festival of lights. 

Loy Krathong takes place at all piers, public parks and river banks on the full moon night in the eleventh month of every year.
