The Peninsula Bangkok Celebrates Loy Krathong

| October 21, 2014 | 0 Comments
The Peninsula Bangkok is preparing to celebrate Loy Krathong on Thursday, 6 November with a grand party on the banks of the Chao Phraya River. The festival began as a way for the Thai people to give thanks to the Goddess of Water. Today, people float krathongs, delicately crafted floats made from lotus or banana leaves containing a candle and incense, on the river. The tradition is said to wash away misfortunes and ensure that wishes come true. The-Peninsula-Bangkok_Loy-KrathongAt The Peninsula Bangkok’s Loy Krathong celebration, guests will enjoy an evening filled with superb cuisine, music and puppet shows performed by the award-winning Joe Louis Theatre. All guests who participate in the Loy Krathong celebration at The Peninsula Bangkok will get a chance to make their own krathong: from preparing the materials to building the raft and then decorating it.
