Loy Krathong is a Thai tradition that has been passed down from generation to generation. It’s when people convene around lakes, rivers, and canals to pay respect to the goddess of water. During this time, people float beautiful lotus-shaped rafts, decorated with candles, incense, and flowers onto the water.
This year’s Loy Krathong falls on November 19, 2021. If you’re looking for a place to go, here are some interesting places you can check out.
