Loi Krathong 2017
On November 3rd 2017, the annual Loi Krathong celebrations take place, which in Pattaya means, thousands of people descending on the beaches and lakes to launch their decorative baskets to honour the river spirits.
The baskets are usually crafted from leaves or bread, decorated, have an incense stick, small candle and a coin placed inside them. They are sight to behold as hundreds if not thousands are set adrift, with locals making a wish as they launch their krathongs.
On the evening of the full moon, once darkness falls, get yourself along and observe this spectacular occasion, it is something the whole family can enjoy.
