People encouraged to use only natural materials for krathongs
This year’s Loy Krathong Festival in Pattaya, the most romantic night on the Thai calendar, falls on Monday, November 14.
With the entire Kingdom in mourning, many regularly scheduled events have been cancelled, although the government encourages people to observe this holiday, but with proper restraints.
Organizers are requesting people wishing to float a krathong to use only those made from all natural material that will easily biodegrade.
Since it is such a revered holiday, expect the large influx of people currently flowing into the resort to get even bigger. This will most likely cause more than a few traffic jams, so please plan ahead should you choose to drive anywhere during the holiday period.
