Loy Kratong 2018 in Pua

Loy Kratong Festival in Thailand

Yesterday was Loy Kratong and at least in Pua (Nan province, North Thailand) it was bigger as the last 2 years. There was music, dancing, firework, food and of course the floating of Kratongs. In Pua it was held at a small lake in town. Loy Kratong is a festival that is celebrated all over Southeast Asia as also in all Thailand. With the floating of your kratong your sins & mistakes float away. Also people let paper lanterns with a candle go up to the sky. In Chiang Mai this is done with so many lanterns that the airport has to be closed for 1 or 2 hours.
