TAT cancels Loy Krathong Festival as hotel and cruise businesses lose incomes : National News Bureau of Thailand

TAT cancels Loy Krathong Festival as hotel and cruise businesses lose incomes : National News Bureau of Thailand | Loy Krathong | Scoop.it

"...the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) has cencelled the Color of the River, Loy Krathong Festival 2011 in Bangkkok and all festivities along the Chao Phraya River..."

 

If this report proves to be correct, please do note that the festivities reported to be cancelled are only those along the Chao Phraya river. Cancelling a festival in Thailand is no easy task. It can be safely assumed that Loy Krathong will still be celebrated throughout the kingdom and nowhere more than in Chiang Mai where the traditional Yee Peng festival is a major highlight in the calendar.

Lanterns in the sky: Sights from Loy Krathong in Chiang Mai, Thailand

Lanterns in the sky: Sights from Loy Krathong in Chiang Mai, Thailand | Loy Krathong | Scoop.it

I always wanted to witness the festival as just seeing the photographs and videos lead me to think this is such a beautiful festival to experience first hand! Loy Krathong is the Thai equivalent to Diwali. You could say it’s Thailand’s ‘festival of lights’. I chose the dates based on information I gathered online, but even after arriving here and asking the hotel staff, I still couldn’t get any concrete information on the schedule of events.

Chiang Mai, Thailand - A COMPLETE HOMEPAGE - Loy Krathong

Chiang Mai, Thailand - A COMPLETE HOMEPAGE - Loy Krathong | Loy Krathong | Scoop.it
Loy Krathong Festival is considered to be the prettiest and most peaceable of all the annual occasions in Thailand. According to the legend, some even seven centuries ago the daughter of a Brahmin priest - her name Nang Nophamas, made a decorative float and showed it to the ruler of the southern Kingdom of Sukhothai. Impressed by its (and possible, her) beauty, the King had it set down on the river and since it's not a bad idea to do what your ruler does, the courtiers followed suit, and the people with them. So much at least for the legend of origin,. The facts may be somewhat different, of course.
