Loy Krathong

Celebrated on the full moon day of the twelfth lunar month, this festival is held usually in the second half of November. It marks the end of the rainy season and pays tribute to the water spirits by depositing small rafts with candles, flowers and incense sticks on the rivers of the country. Thousands of lanterns are also launched into the sky of Thailand.
At Loy Kratong, a big sound and light show takes place at Sukhothai Historical Park, while Chiang Mai starts its Yee Peng Festival.
Sometimes called the Lantern Festival, Loy Kratong means floating raft.
