Colorful Festivals in Thailand

If you are trying to decide when to travel to Thailand, bear in mind some of the colorful and exciting festivals that take place in this beautiful country every year.

Travelling to Thailand to experience one of these festivals will provide you a real appreciation of Thai cultural, beliefs and you’ll see how the locals really celebrate life. Culture is a national identity (which is also known as “วัฒนธรรมเป็นเอกลักษณ์ประจำชาติ” in Thai language) of every nation.

The festivals climax late in the year with nearly all the most spectacular celebrations being held in October through to January so if you’re considering planning a trip to Thailand why not check out our favorite places to be.

From the north of Thailand the Loy Krathong Sai Festival of Lights is a beautiful night occasion where Thai’s float decorated Krathongs, (banana leaves folded into a circle, illuminated with candles, incense, and other decoration) – a true highlight of any Thailand holiday.

The celebrations of Loy Krathong in Tak province is a party where the local custom is to thread coconut shell Krathongs together and float them in a candlelit chain down the Ping Riverin Amphoe Mueang Tak in the 200 year-old Rattanakosin Bridge. Stand by the riverside to watch this amazing sight and get a true feel for Thailand travel. The banana cup is intended to float off ill fortune as well as to express apologies to Khongkha or Ganga.
