Loi Krathong Sai 1,000 Floating Lanterns 2017
3-7 November 2017
On the banks of the Ping River, Rattanakosin 200 years Bridge, Tak Province
A tranquil oasis off the mainstream tourist track, Tak province looks forward to welcoming visitors with warm Thai hospitality and a unique culture like no other this November.
Known as Thailand’s western frontier to Myanmar and gateway to the Northern provinces, Tak is home to the unique ‘Loi Krathong Sai’ floating lantern festival. A source of pride for the province, the illuminating nighttime celebration marks the full moon on the 12th month in the Thai traditional calendar. Held on the Ping River, the festival represents the area’s unique cultural heritage, and local wisdom passed down from generation to generation.
Unlike anywhere else in Thailand, Tak’s Loi Krathong Sai 1,000 Floating Lanterns festival kicks off with Krathong Sai Parade, where local residents dress up in Thai traditional costumes to celebrate the grand lantern procession, which is presided over by 8 Royal Krathongs to commemorate and to mark the beginning of the festivities along the Ping River.
Loi Krathong Sai 1,000 Floating Lanterns 2017 will take place from 3-7 November 2017, on the banks of the Ping River, Rattanakosin 200 years Bridge, Tak Province.
