My friend, Anny came from Germany to visited Thailand. She came to my house on Loikrathong Day so we went to the festival together. She really like it because everything is so diferent and she never seen it before such as Krathong, and the way of thai people do before they flow the Krathong.I told her some story about it and also let her make a wish before flow the Krathong........
Loi Krathong is a way of saying thank you and apologize for what we've done to the river - it's all in honor of the mother of water, Mae Khongka, in attonement for a year of water pollution.
Its the first full moon of November that we celebrate Loi Krathong Festival.
Some locals will make their own "krathong", but you can buy one from one of the vendors. Fill your krathong with a candle, flowers, incense, and a coin. Sometimes, locals add a snip of their hair or fingernails to the krathong (so that a part of their bodies goes out to the goddess).
In November, full moon, there will be the Loy Kratong festival in Thailand. This year (2004), in Bangkok, the festival starts from 24-26 of November, many boats are decorated with light and cruise along the Chao-Praya river. You can go to piers such as Maharaj pier or Pra-Are-Thit pier to view a stunning view.
