Places: Maung District, Sukhothai Province
Loy Krathong is held on the full moon of the 12th month in the traditional Thai lunar calendar. In the western calendar this usually falls in November.
Although the holiday of Loy Krathong is now celebrated throughout the
kingdom, Loy Krathong originated in Sukhothai, the first Thai capital. While particularly popular with couples who head down to any nearby body of water to light the candles and incense on their floating Krathongs, visitors can best appreciate Loy Krathong by heading to the ancient capital of Sukhothai, where the holiday was first celebrated.
Activities : Experiencing the festival of the Dawn of Happiness city with chandelier lamp parades and fire blast, playing small confection cup spark fireworks, enjoying traditional performance, local recreational games and markets.
