So with a group of friends we went off last night to the klong in the village where at about 19:00 had gathered already a few hundred people. There even was a stage for dancing and a live-band! We did sit down with a 3-liter bottle of cheap wine and enjoyed the party. In the meanwhile people were floating their kratong. And there where all the kratong end-up in a kind of corner of the klong young kids go in the water to get the coins out of the kratongs. And nobody minds, everyone has floated their kratong away and that is what counts. Not what happens after that. Officially no Lanterns or firework but of course some people did, but unfortunately only 2 Lanterns were going to heaven. So happy Loy Kratong to everybody and may your wishes be heard.
