Let's make Krathong together for the celebration this year!

One of the most picturesque festivals in Chiangmai 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.

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

Warm regards,

Mon
