- 10th Nov: Loy Krathong is one of the most popular festivals of Thailand celebrated annually on the Full-Moon Day of the Twelfth Lunar Month. The word “Loy” means “to float”, & “Krathong” means lotus-shaped vessel made of banana leaves. A krathong usually contains a candle, 3 joss sticks, some flowers & coins. The festival starts in the evening when there is a full moon in the sky. People carry their krathongs to the river, after lighting candles & joss sticks and making a wish, they gently place the krathongs on the water and let them drift away til they go out of sight. It is believed that krathongs carry away their sins & bad luck, and happiness will come to them.
- Chinese lanterns (Kom Loy ): During this festive season, thousands of lanterns light up the Pai night sky. Although these look amazing, please be aware that they can start unwanted fires and become litter the following day! So please, if you let one fly, then pick one up the next day!
