Loy Krathong, the Beautiful Festival of Thailand

Loy Krathong is one of the most beautiful festival of Thailand.  In the old days, Thai people hold this loy krathong festival because they would like to express their gratitude to the goddess of water.  Loy Krathong festival is held on the full moon night of the twelfth lunar month each year (November).

Nowadays, you will see a lot of Thai people celebrating the Loy Krathong festival by floating their krathong decorating with beautiful flowers, lighting candles and joss sticks to the river.  The river is very beautiful with the wonderful krathongs with beautiful lights.  Lovers who float the krathong together is believed to stay together in the future.

That is Loy Krathong, one of the most beautiful Festival of Thailand.  You are welcome to join the great celebration with Thai people!
