Loy Krathong

The moon will be full on Monday night, November 2nd, and this will be Loy Krathong day. Like every year, Thai people will make or buy a krathong, which is a little boat made from a banana tree and decorated with banana leaves and flowers. They will light candles and incense sticks and release the krathong on a river or a lake. It will float away, carrying with it all the bad things and bad feelings, so that only good luck remains.

It’s always enchanting to see all the illuminated krathongs on the water, in a peaceful atmosphere. Make sure you don’t miss this event! In Cha-am the main celebration will take place at Wat Neran, this is on North Cha-am beach after the bridge that leads to the fishing pier. See you there!
