Loy Kratong Festival...the festival of lights

Loy Kratong is a popular Thai festival held on the day of a full moon, usually towards the end of November. Traditionally the festival is a means of paying respect to the Goddess of the Waters and apologizing for any pollution that has occurred. The Kratong is a small boat usually made from a banana leaf and may contain a candle, incense sticks, a flower, a coin and other objects. After dark, throughout Thailand, families gather by a canal, river or pond to launch their Kratongs while making a wish. It is a colourful sight to see the candlelight from many hundreds of these Kratongs bobbing up and down while floating (Loy) down a river or across a pond.

This year we celebrated Loy Krathong pool side on November 20th. 100 guests joined with us to experience a great evening of Thai food, traditional dances and live music, and all contributed to an annual tradition of democratically electing one of our own staff – Miss Fah - waitress - as Miss Pimalai Noppamas,.

On 21st, November, Pimalai joined the ever growing Loy Krathong festival at the Old Town on the east coast of Lanta, competing with other local organizations; we fared very well collecting first prize for “Best Parade” , first prize for “Best Krathong”, and second prize for “Most Beautiful Noppamas”.
