A Magical Loy Krathong in Bangkok by the Magical Chao Phraya River

Thailand has many memorable events throughout the year but none is more magical or memorable than the annual Loy Krathong Festival, held on the night of the glittering full moon in early or mid-November.

On this wonderful evening people throughout Thailand gather to float krathongs,  small banana tree leaf boats containing beautiful flowers, garlands and a lighted candle, on the many rivers, lakes and streams in the kingdom to pay respects to the water spirits and to make a secret wish.
