21st of November Loy Krathong

This Saturday will be a special holiday here in Thailand as the Thais will be celebrating the Loy Krathong Festival. We will be bringing our family and guests to the lake for them to see how the Thais celebrate this festival.

Krathongs are containers which are traditionally made of banana leaves and flowers. The Thai believe that during this festival, they can let their troubles sail away in the river or lake. Some people who are far from any natural water source do it in man made pools or canals ( not from stainless steel drums) . I will be sharing the photos of the festival soon.
