Loy Kratong 2018 in Pua

Loy Kratong Festival in Thailand
Loy Kratong 2018 in Pua, Nan, North 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.
