Notes
  • 'Loy Krathong (or Loi Kratong)’ is considered one of Thailand’s most beautiful festivals. It is sometimes called the ’Festival of Lights’, due to the twinkling lights of krathongs that are floated on rivers and streams. The date of the festival varies every year, but it is traditionally held on the full moon night of the twelfth lunar month. This year, Loy Krathong is on November 28, 2012. On this day Thai people pay tribute to the ’Goddess of the River’ (Chao Mae Kongka). Some believe that the ritual is meant to worship the Buddha’s footprint on the bank of the Narmada River, while others also refers to drive out misfortune and bad things in the past and asking for good luck in the future.

    The highlight of the festival would be the most beautiful Krathong contest and beauty pageant set in memory of ’Nang Noppamas’, the legendary woman in the Sukhothai period more than 700 years ago.

    'Loy’ means to float and ’Krathong’ is a traditional vessel, made from parts of banana tree trunk, bread or flowers, decorated with folded banana leaves usually contains flowers, a candle, three incense sticks and coins.
