Attend the the annual Loi Krathong Festival, celebrated on the evening of the full moon of the 12th month in the traditional Thai lunar calendar!

Loi Krathong is an annual festival that is celebrated by the southwestern Thai cultures. Its name translates as "to float a basket" and it comes from the tradition of making Krathong or buoyant, decorated baskets, which are then floated on a river. It takes place on the evening of the full moon of the 12th month every year while it's based on the Thai lunar calendar, that's why it does not have an exact date.
