Loy = Float
Krathong = Basket, made from banana leaf in usual.
We float the basket for respect the river God called ‘Phra mae Khongka’. My home is located beside the river, I remember when I was young many people sell some food and firework on the boat. The children were very happy to play, in the river was very beautiful.
For this special festival, I brink our guests to my home and float the basket in Chao Phaya river. We made a BBQ , drink and took the boat to the river (as a river tour but not like tourist because of my cousin ride the small boat like local people)
For 2017 Loy Krathong is November 3rd.
