Thailand will celebrate the Loy Krathong Festival nationwide on November 8.
In Hua Hin, there is lots going on with nearly all of the major hotels hosting an event of some kind.
Loy Krathong is one of the most picturesque festivals to be held in the country, and Hua Hin is no exception.
The evening will see people gather around water, normally lakes, the beach or hotel pools, to pay respects to the goddess of water.
People taking part in the festivities will release beautiful lotus shaped rafts (hopefully biodegradable), which are decorated with candles, incense and flowers.
Every year, Loy Krathong falls on the night of the 12th lunar month at the end of the rainy season when the full moon lights up the sky.
This year will be extra special as a full lunar eclipse will occur on Nov 8 between 15.02 to 20.56 hr (Thailand time),
Wherever you celebrate the festival, the sight of krathongs, the flickering candles is a really nice spectacle.
There are several public events planned throughout Hua Hin.
But if you want to beat the huge crowds, the best option is to head to one of Hua Hin’s hotels and join in the festivities there.
Hotels are organising eco-friendly and biodegradable krathong-making workshops and sumptuous buffets and feasts.
Below is a round up of some of the best places to celebrate Loy Krathong in Hua Hin:
