Krabi Riviera Co Ltd, a leading provider of luxury holiday villas in Southern Thailand, is delighted to promote the Loi Krathong festival that will take place in Thailand this month. To help people celebrate, the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) has organised a number of official events, and thousands are expected to participate in this beautiful festival throughout the country.
Loi Krathong is a long established and immensely popular tradition in Thailand, and thousands of people celebrate the festival every year. The name of the festival can be translated to mean ‘Floating Decoration’, which originates from the custom of making an attractive decoration that is then floated on a river, lake, or even the sea. The decorations are traditionally made using a slice of trunk from a banana tree, which is then decorated with leaves, flowers and candles.
