This is Loy Krathong in Thailand

Loy Krathong is a Thai festival celebrated annually throughout Thailand and in nearby countries with significant South Western Tai cultures. The name could be translated as “to float ritual vessel or lamp,” and comes from the tradition of making Krathong or buoyant, decorated baskets, which are then floated on a river. Many Thais use the Krathong to thank the Goddess of Water, Phra Mae Khongkha or to worship the Buddha’s hair pagoda in heaven. As for our local festival, there is certainly no shortage of food and trinkets at our local temple. Wat Tha Phut is only a couple of kilometres from our house, so we avoided the traffic by taking of Yamaha Fino and snuck through the traffic.
