Thai festivals you shouldn't miss! Most festivals depend on the lunar calendar, so the date varies from year to year. Verify the right dates with for example the Tourism Authority of Thailand.

Loy Krathong (ลอยกระทง)

People launch a boat made of banana leaves into the water to thank the river for providing water and to cleanse themselves. On this boat they put flowers, a candle, incense, golden coins, a hair and nail of the sender(s). In Bangkok one also finds a gigantic fair on the temple grounds of Wat Saket.
