Loi Krathong

In Chiang Mai with friends, we have participated in the festivities of Loi Krathong. It takes place in the evenings of the full moon of the 12th month of the Thai lunar calendar (usually in November).

Thais launch their floating baskets on a river, canal or pond, making a wish as they do so.

 

A Chiang Mai chez des amis, nous avons participé aux festivités de Loi Krathong. Ce festival a lieu lors de la pleine lune du 12e mois du calendrier lunaire thaï (généralement en novembre).

Les Thaïs déposent leurs paniers flottants dans des rivières, canaux ou mares, en faisant un voeu.

 

 

Giant lanterns rise into the air and gracefully float through the sky. Planes cannot fly for two nights.

Des lampions géants sont allumés et lâchés, ils flottent gracieusement dans les airs. Tous les vols sont suspendus durant deux nuits.
