Every year, Loy Krathong falls on the night of the twelfth lunar month (usually in November), at the end of the rainy season when the full-moon lights up the sky. The sight of thousands of Krathongs, One of the most picturesque festivals in Bangkok is the evening of Loy Krathong, when people gather around lakes, rivers and canals to pay respects to the goddess of water by releasing beautiful lotus shaped rafts, decorated with candles, incense and flowers onto the water.

Flickering candles sending a thousand pinpoints of light far into the horizon is a truly magical site, and there are plenty of places in Bangkok where you can get involved with the festivities.

PLACE:  KLONGS / CANALS / RIVERS 

WHAT IS IT:        LOY KRATHONG CULTURE      HOW TO MAKE ONE




Loy krathong's lyrics



November full moon shines, Loi Krathong, Loi Krathong, and the water's high in the river and local klong,


Loi Loi Krathong, Loi Loi Krathong, Loi Krathong is here and everybody's full of cheer,


We're together at the klong, We're together at the klong,


Each one with this krathong, As we push away we pray,
We can see a better day.
