Songkran Festival in Thailand
Song Kran is the Thai New Year, which falls on 13 April every year but also includes the 14th and 15th as part of the celebration. Song Kran is derived from a Sanskrit word meaning ‘astrological passage’, referring to a period of transition or change.
Loy Krathong Festival in Thailand
Loy Krathong is arguably Thailand’s most beautiful festival. Held on the night of the twelfth lunar month , when the full moon shines brightly in the inky black sky, this festival is an honouring of the goddess of water. To pay their respects to this goddess, and to try to ensure good fortune and prosperity in the months to come, Thai people construct elaborate lotus-shaped rafts (krathongs) decorated with incense, flowers and candles and release them into lakes, rivers, canals, and the sea.
