Loi Krathong in Sukhothai
Loi Krathong will be celebrated on November 14 2016 and is one of the most magical Festivals in Thailand and especially in Sukhothai.
The Festival, that means literally “to float a basket”, is a yearly event that commonly happens in November in coincidence with the first fool moon of the Thai lunar calendar of the 12th month. If you happen to be in Thailand during this Festival you will see thousands of floating lanterns called “Krathong" in all major watercourse around the country.
Loi Krathong is believed to be originally born in Sukhothai and still is one of the most spectacular places to see a traditional celebration of this event where not only floating lanterns will be visible all around the city but also Sky Lanterns and fireworks commonly illuminate this astonishing evening of celebrations.
