Loy Krathong Festival

Loy Krathong Festival

Every year Loy Krathong falls on the night of the 12th lunar month. At the end of rainy season when the full moon lights up the sky. The sight of thousands of Krathongs. their flickering candles sending a thousand pinpoints of light far into the horizon is a truly magical sight.

This year Loy Krathong Festival will be held on Monday 11 November, 2019.  

What is Loy Krathong?

  • The history behind the festival is complex. Thai celebrate it for many reasons. As the main rice harvest season ends. It’s time to thank the Water Goddess for a year’s worth of her abudant supply as well as an apology for polluting the waters.

What is a Krathong?

  • There is no equivalent word in English for “Krathong”. You may hear people referring to it as a small boat, vessel, receptacle or container. In the runup to the festival, many shops and market stalls will display ready-made krathongs or in parts so you can assemble and decorate as you wish.

Where can you float a Krathong in Bangkok?

  • Riverside Location such as Asiatique, Wat Saket, Phra Athit pier.
  • Lakes ; Lumpini park at Silom, Benjasiri Park at Sukhumvit

In Remembrance of His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej

King’s innovations

Even as a young prince growing up in Switzerland, His Majesty the King was a keen craftsman. With his older brother, King Ananda Mahidol, he assembled electric engines and radios, models and gliders. He even repaired his nanny’s sewing machine and constructed a simple radio.

A dog with destiny

His Majesty King Bhumibol raised several dogs over the years, but was rarely pictured with one until 1998, when His Majesty was presented with a stray dog by the staff of the Rama IX Medical Centre. With a copper coloured coat, the dog was named “Tongdaeng”, and was in fact His Majesty’s 17th dog. She soon became His Majesty’s constant companion as well as one of the most famous dogs in the country.

Guardian of the Nation

His Majesty the King strived to maintain his constitutional role and impartiality when it came to politics. In times of crisis, however, his voice made all the difference.
